About the Chase

Chase both an Ambulance and an Ambulance Helicopter around scenic Lake Miramar while helping to better the lives of sick or injured children!

The Ambulance Chase is a 8K Professionally Timed Run and a 5K Fun Run/Walk at beautiful Lake Miramar!

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 features:

  • Fast and Flat Scenic Course
  • Chip Timing for the 8K
  • Tech T-shirts for both runners and walkers
  • 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. 

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.

Strollers are welcome.   Please no pets on the 8K.  Pets are welcome on the 5K walk/run, but please start at the back.

Also new this year —- the FAMILY FUN FESTIVAL!

Additional Info:  A bag drop will be provided at the lake for your gear.  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.
