Join us for a 5K run to support local pet rescues! Lace-up your sneakers and hit the pavement for a good cause. This special event is dedicated to helping rescue and rehabilitate homeless pets, and finding them loving forever homes.

By participating in this run, you'll be helping to make a difference in the lives of animals in need. Your support will help provide food, shelter, medical care, and other necessities for pets who are waiting to find their forever homes. K9- Kismet is a local charity that supports these pets in need of forever homes.

This event is perfect for anyone who loves running the morning of a full moon. Whether you're an experienced runner or just looking for a fun challenge, you'll love the energy and excitement of this event.

At High Tide Runs, we're not just an event – we're a movement, a community of runners bound by the love of the run and the serenity of the sea. Whether you're a seasoned speedster chasing personal records or a mom with a stroller seeking a family-friendly outing, our races are tailored for you.

Why settle for the norm when you can have an extraordinary experience at a fraction of the cost? We're not about the glitz and glamor of extravagant events; we're about substance and connection. Our mission is to make running accessible to everyone, to celebrate the journey rather than the spectacle.

Embark on a thrilling coastal adventure with High Tide Runs, offering an array of exciting race distances – 5k, 10k, or a Half Marathon. Experience the exhilaration of conquering the Santa Monica course, surrounded by fellow runners pursuing their individual goals. The refreshing ocean breeze and stunning coastal views will fuel your motivation at every step.
