51st Annual Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Run

 

 

We are going virtual.   Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our physical events this year.   We will be offering the Rock to Pier Run (6miles) virtually.

How do you run virtually?

1.  You pick a date between July 1 and July 31

2.  You pick your location to run--your neighborhood, a local park or school or your treadmill and run/walk 6 miles.  Be sure to observe social distancing and obey all applicable traffic laws.

3.  On July 1 we will send you an email or text message (if you opted in) with a reminder to submit your finish time.  There will be one other text message to remind you to submit your finish time.

4.   We will mail you the commemorative t-shirt and any swag you purchased starting early August (or early).

5.  Follow us on social media  Facebook City of Morro Bay Recreation Services and Instagram @morrobayrecreation for trivia, games, and giveaways

6. Post your photos with the hashtag #BWIrun4rec

Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

 

Registration has closed for this event.
