Enjoy an unbelievable beach run along cliffs, reefs, and mansions. It's a great way to start your Saturday or Sunday or even a date!

You can start at either Grandview Beach and head south along the beach to the San Elijo lagoon, or you can start there and head north...either way you'll be amazed. The run is a relatively flat, normal beach run with a few exceptions being the reefs (at low tide), the cliffs, and the homes that line them.

Not as glitzy as La Jolla or as crowded as Pacific Beach, Encinitas is a more laid back beach town that has it's own character and space. Through the towns of Leucadia and Cardiff (located within Encinitas) you will be able to see some eclectic homes perched along the clifftop as you run past. At Swamis beach you will be exposed to some reef to run through and in front of the San Elijo campgrounds, you will enjoy the flattest, hardest packed sand to really increase your heart rate. This is a great run to do in the morning for the rising east sun or even better in the evening to watch the sunset as you wind down.
