Some of the Board Members at the August 2016 Tiki Trot 5K
Pacifica Runners is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and member club of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). It started as an idea between 3 moms running with their families in April 2013 to honor the victims from the Boston Marathon. This soon became a Facebook Group. In May 2013, an informal run was organized at San Pedro Valley Park in Pacifica. The co-founders expected 10-30 people and were shocked when over 70 showed up! Realizing the need for a group like this in Pacifica, they started the process of forming a board and joining the RRCA.
Our initial goal was to host monthly 5k runs for all levels and all ages, and to put on free clinics to members with a variety of subjects and speakers.
Now, in 2015, our aim is to have quarterly 5K and/or 10K races, and to get as many Pacifica residents as possible out running in our beautiful town.
We also plan to use the support of local businesses to help keep the cost of runs down, allowing for greater participation.
