Event Day Parking

There are many street parking and parking lot options in downtown San Diego. The organisers recommend:

ACE Parking Lot behind the Convention Center. 600 CONVENTION WAY.  Cost is $10 cash or check or $15 credit. 

ACE PARKING LOT next to PETCO Park at 58 N. 11TH AVENUE .  The pedestrian bridge by that parking lot will take you over Harbor Drive to the Hilton Hotel where there is a bayside sidewalk that will take you to Embarcadero Park South. 

SAN DIEGO CONVENTION CENTER also has parking, however it is a little more expensive.


Interested in helping out? Whether you’re an army of one or many, we want you to be a part of the fun too! We are looking for volunteers that are enthusiastic, fun-loving individuals that want to give back while having fun. Make friends, have fun, and help out a great cause.


Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are allowed in Pasadena, however, they are not allowed in San Diego. Unfortunately, our Mission Bay permit does not allow for dogs. Service dogs excepted.

Is there a time limit?

Nope – take your time!

What if it rains?

Awesome 80s Run will take place rain or shine. However, if conditions are determined by city officials to be unsafe, the race will be rescheduled. No refunds will be made.
