Event Date:November 12, 2022

By-the-Bay 3K

We will NOT hold the By the Bay 3K in 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic. 

Our highest priority is always the safety of our participants, volunteers, friends and family, and residents. We were also very concerned about having access to needed public safety and medical officials, volunteers, and personal protection equipment and supplies during this ongoing crisis. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you November 11-13, 2022.


The 2019 entry fees are listed below. The fees for the November 2022 race will be announced in April 2022 when registration is scheduled to open.

$10.00 for children and youth ages 4 through 17
$25.00 for adults ages 18 and over


Paper registration forms are not available. Registration date to be determined.

Registrants must be 4 years of age or older and in good health to participate. Official 2022 original race numbers are required to take part in the event. For safety and liability reasons, children in strollers may participate if they start in the back. Sorry, but no dogs allowed on course or at the start/finish area in Lovers Point Park.


Bibs and event shirts can be picked up at the Health & Fitness Expo at the Monterey Conference Center. A photo ID is required for pick-up.

Race morning pick-up is available at Lovers Point Park beginning at 6:30 AM.


The 3K begins at 8 AM at Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove.


On race day, there will be parking in the Pacific Grove public parking lots and on neighborhood streets. Be sure to note any parking enforcement signs and hours.


The course is out-and-back beginning and ending at Lovers Point Park with a turnaround at Coral Street. Runners go west in the inland lane and after turning around, return to the finish in the ocean-side lane. View a 3K course map.


The 3K is a timed but not competitive fun run; there are no “winners” or divisional awards. All participants receive an event shirt and finishers’ medal. There will be refreshments and pre and post-race activities for the kids at Lovers Point Park.
