Coronado, California is a runner's paradise. There are many options for long or short courses, but the beach route is by far the best.
I was lucky to attend high school in this little town and one of the highlights of my teenage experiences was Monday afternoon Cross Country practice at the beach. Our team had a habit of winning many medals, and much of our prowess could be attributed to the gorgeous trails we traversed on a weekly basis.
If you are looking for a jog with million dollar views, lace up your shoes and cruise across the packed sand at the ocean’s edge or take to the dunes that cuddle up against the rocks. Those little hills of cactus covered sand move beneath your feet and before long you can feel the burn!
Coronado Beach is accessible from San Diego via the Coronado Bay Bridge or the Silver Strand Highway.
