Lake Miramar, San Diego California

About the Chase

The Ambulance Chase is a 8K Professionally Timed Run and a 5K Fun Run/Walk at beautiful Lake Miramar.  The event is celebration of those who come together to better the lives of sick and injured children.

The  Chase has whimsical name, but the crisis faced by a family with a sick or injured child is a serious matter.  Money raised from this event will help fund the critical services and care being provided by the Professional Alliance for Children and Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

The Chase will attract competitive runners and local race teams, active, health-conscious adults, and families.

  • Fast and Flat Scenic Course
  • Chip Timing
  • Awards and Medals

While the 8K race is geared towards the more competitive athlete, the 5k “Fun Run/Walk” will be a great time for children, families and those seeking a more leisurely pace. Strollers are welcome, and the flat course makes it easy for those in wheel chairs to participate. There will also be a special 1 mile kids run for runners age 6 to 12. 

Also new this year will be the FAMILY FUN FESTIVAL!  

What?:   The Ambulance Chase is a fundraiser for the Professional Alliance for Children and Rady Children’s Hospital.  The Chase is an 8 kilometer run or a 5 kilometer fun run/walk around Lake Miramar to raise money to help better the lives of ill children.  It’s a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the “Ambulance Chasers” who help ill children.   It will be great fun for competitive runners,  the not so competitive,  and walkers.  Strollers are welcome, but please no pets.

Chip timing for 8K run; awards for top runners; medals for kids; scenic flat course.  A bag drop will be provided at the lake for your gear.   Pre-registered runners are guaranteed a special tech t-shirt.  Kids 3 and under are free.  There will be an additional award for the best dressed “Chaser” and Team.    To add to the fun,  costumes are encouraged  but optional.  While you’re waiting for the Chase to start, enjoy live music from the Twin Peaks School Jazz Band, under the direction of Andrew Moreau, who will be rallying the runners and walkers beginning at 7:30 AM.   Also revving up the Chase will be cheerleaders from Cathedral High School.

Create or join a TEAM and have even more fun  — start in the “individual” category to create or find a team.  There will be TEAM AWARDS for the Fastest Team, the Largest Team, and the Best Dressed Team.
