Stretching only a half mile down the road, kids are able to make the journey bright and early at 7:30 a.m. that morning, with the adult races following at 8:00 a.m. Registration is open online with prices ranging from $5-$45 and if you register by March 3rd, you’ll receive a 2018 Whale Run t-shirt!
Celebrating 34 years of the Whale Run
The Whale Run & Walk has come a long way since its conception in 1984. From 25 racers to well over 900, this annual event has become a California favorite. Each year, all proceeds are given back to the thriving community of Fort Braggs through high school scholarships and awards.
Starting and finishing in the heart of Fort Bragg, this staple event will give you and your family the ultimate experience you’ve been looking for. Want to make it a whole weekend occasion? Cleone Gardens Inn is located only seven minutes away from the starting line! Book your stay today by calling 800-400-2189.
