Ted's 3 mile run (5K), on the Prado.

  • In front of the Hall of Champions, in Balboa Park.

    Corner of Presidents' Way, and Pan American Way. Just west of Park Blvd., San Diego, CA (map)

    32.733074 -117.146080

  • We meet on the grass, in front of the Hall of Champions
  • This 3 mile run is a great way to start the weekend. (There is also a 2 mile version of the course.)  3 miles is a perfect distance for beginners.  3 miles is also great distiance for intermediate, and elite runners.  Runner's World Magazine' s philosophy is that shorter runs, at a fast pace, improves half marathon- and marathon times (faster splits)!  This is a scenic run through historic Balboa Park. This is your tour of Balboa Park, on the run! We run past many of the park's attractions. We may choose to do a core workout after the run. We will meet in front of the Hall of Champions. ( I think that it is safer to have a lighted parking lot next to the meetup area.) To get to the Hall of Champions, take Park Blvd. and turn on to Presidents' Way. The Hall of Champions is located at the corner of Presidents' Way and Pan American Road.

    Sorry Folks! Due to a conflict, with possible crowd congestion, and parking limitations, with Park Activities ( through Sunday); this Friday's (tonight's) Run On The Prado is CANCELLED - until next Friday.

    See you next week, Everyone!

    My dad decided last minute that he wants to catch a padres game with me so I'll be running earlier in the day and attending the game with my dad in the evening.

    Oops. I meant no. I might go running somewhere else for once. There's a free concert going on free just up the street few miles away. Starts at 6. So, I will try be near home running and earlier in the day.
