Cabrillo Sunset 5k Recap

Indie Twin Double Stroller in Camp Green featured.

July 20, 2019

The Cabrillo Sunset 5k was good for the soul! We sponsored the 5k race along with other local businesses in our community. Team Bumbleride consisted of staff and family with our kids ranging from age 2 to 16 joining in to run/walk. The venue was picturesque and we definitely conquered the steep hill up from the tidepools with strollers and toddlers in tow.

Cabrillo National Monument located Point Loma, CA is San Diego’s only National Park. This beautiful National Park is Bumbleride’s neighbor and our contributions and participation in this race support many incredible programs that we value, including science and education for underprivileged kids.

The location offers expansive views of both San Diego’s harbor and skyline on one side and the open ocean on the other. It is a spectacular view from up there! Bumbleride sponsored their Sunrise 5k back in February of 2019 and when offered a sponsorship opportunity for the Sunrise 5k, we jumped at the chance. We love to support our local community, encourage the outdoors and be in the fresh air with family.

Hope you’ll join us next year! Learn more here when the next race date is announced.

The morning started out with a little rain and cleared for the start. The Santa Cruz race couldn’t be in a more picturesque location.

Run She Is Beautiful – Baby Mama Division 5k & 5 mile – Santa Barbara

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.

Join us next year!

She.is.beautiful’s Mission Statement

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.
