PISMO BEACH STRIDE WITH THE TIDE 5K
The Stride with the Tide 5K race committee has decided that it’s best to cancel the race for this year. We didn’t see how the race would be feasible while meeting the recommendations and guidelines from local and state health officials. We were hopeful that we would be in a better place with COVID-19 by this time but it’s apparent we are not. We will miss this event and seeing all of you.
