Cabrillo National Monument Sunrise 5k Point Loma, CA February 9, 2019
It was an especially chilly San Diego morning on February 9, 2019! Our Bumbleride team was up super early before the sunrise in Point Loma, CA to head up to San Diego’s only national park, Cabrillo National Monument for the Sunrise 5k. We love sponsoring local events where we can be outside exploring with our families while also giving back to our local community. This particular sponsorship helps provide science and education for underprivileged kids, a subject near and dear to our hearts.
We set up camp and did some pre-run stretching and yoga, fueled up on hot coffee and took off on the picturesque route along the Pacific Ocean. The crisp air and expansive ocean views were amazing and it was fun to be at the park before the hours it is typically open to the public.
What a fun 5k! We crossed the finish line and went back to our booth to help answer questions about Bumbleride from local families. It was an intimate event that we loved being a part of. We can’t wait to sponsor the next Sunset 5k coming up on Saturday, July 20th, 2019! Join us!
Looking for an awesome family activity on Saturday, February 9th? Join us in supporting the Cabrillo Sunrise 5k at Cabrillo National Monument. Watch the sunrise over San Diego and explore the park afterwards. See spectacular ocean views at an hour of the day when the park is normally closed.
This event is family and stroller friendly. Stroller riders do not need to register as long as they stay in the stroller (adults and child walkers will need to register). Please stop by the Bumbleride tent to say Hi!
We arrived. We ran (with Speed). We were inspired once again.
This was the third consecutive year that we’ve sponsored the Baby Mama Division of the inspiring She is Beautiful run in Santa Barbara (we also sponsor the Santa Cruz run!) Being there, it’s impossible to not be inspired, encouraged and celebrated. The two sisters, Melissa McConville (race founder & director) and Sara Tanza (Assistant Race Director & Chief of Fun) wouldn’t have it any other way. They exude happiness and kindness + see the good in everyone. Their MORE LOVE attitude is contagious.
With motivational words posted all through the course and groups of women from all walks of life walking, running, skipping or pushing a stroller, the race goes by in a blink. Set right on the Santa Barbara coastline, the beautiful scenery is the icing on the cake.
Bumbleride’s mission is to make gear for you to get out and do what you love while doing our best to preserve the planet we all share. This run helps us see our mission in action. This year, not only did we see tons of parents out running in the fresh air with their little ones in a stroller, we were so thrilled to see RSIB take the waste element to a whole new level with both compost and recycling options next to trash bins. The race directors regularly attend conferences to help them to reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste altogether in these large scale events. So cool.
Each year, proudly gift a Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller to each of the winners of the two distances, 5k and 5 miler. These strong, dedicated mamas deserve it! Congratulations to the 5k winner, Molly Thomson from Santa Barbara, CA and the 5 mile winner, Laura Ewing from Ventura, CA.
Empowering women and girls through movement and community in a supportive environment where they are able to take the lessons learned on the road and trail into the rest of their lives. We believe that beauty is more of a feeling than a physical attribute. We believe everyone deserves to feel beautiful, strong, smart, and capable in their own unique way. We believe so strongly in the power of sweat and community. We think there is something powerful that happens when a women/girl learns how strong she really is and how this can impact the rest of her life.
