Pacific Pursuit 10k at UC San Diego
In an effort to provide additional opportunities for Olympic and Olympic Trials Standard marks to long distance track athletes, we were pleased to work with officials from UC San Diego to host the Pacific Pursuit 10k February 18th, 2019. The Pacific Pursuit was established by Drew Wartenburg and the NorCal Distance Project in 2015 to provide an early season opportunity for athletes to chase qualifying marks heading into the 2016 Olympic Track Trials. We hope to continue their success of this event into this next Olympic cycle to give athletes the chance at hitting marks for the 2020 Games at the beginning of the qualifying window.
Please support this event by making a tax-deductible donation to help our group offset some of the organizational costs. Taking on these costs as a small group is a large undertaking. But, we hope this event (like Portland Track Festival, Music City Distance Carnival, the Adrian Martinez Classic, etc) can join the trend for more post-collegiate opportunities domestically, independent of the collegiate season.
Re-Watch the Event:
Time: 10am and 10:40am
