Wreking it on the Wharf

July 02, 2018

Explore Santa Cruz by foot with 16,000 others by joining the Wharf to Wharf Race. This six-mile race has been happening every single year since 1973. It first began by a handful of locals that were challenging one another to see who would be the first one to reach Capitola Wharf from Santa Cruz Wharf. Ever since that fateful day, this race has been named ‘The Best Little Road Race in California.’ This year's spectacular little race takes place on July 22nd and leads you all along the coast of Santa Cruz. There is also exciting entertainment throughout the entire length of the trek to keep you pumped up! As a feel-good bonus, this event donates part of their proceeds back to Santa Cruz and to the Santa Cruz County Youth Sports Program. Kickstart this running season with the iconic Wharf to Wharf Race and energetic atmosphere!
