Schoolyard Dash

Join us on Sunday, April 21, 2024, for the 8th Annual
Schoolyard Dash 5K and 1 Mile Kids Fun Run!

Run, walk, or just enjoy the morning at beautiful De Anza Cove at Mission Bay. The 5K run/walk benefits Pacific Beach Middle School and Mission Bay High School through the joint parent-teacher organization, Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools (FOPBSS). Register here today!

Runners and walkers will enjoy an out-and-back course along beautiful Mission Bay. Following the run/walk, there will be snacks, a vendor village, and excellent musicians from our local community to entertain you. Information about both secondary schools will be available. Come and enjoy the fun — all while supporting the Pacific Beach schools!

The Mission Bay Cluster school that has the most registered participants will take home the coveted team trophy. Will Barnard have it back for another year? Or will CPJMA, Kate Sessions, PBE, PBMS, or MBHS snatch it back?! Register today to help your school win the trophy.

The MBHS class (2024, 2025, 2026, or 2027) that has the highest participation of students + family will win a $500 donation from FOPBSS!

Friends of Pacific Beach Secondary Schools (FOPBSS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation benefiting Pacific Beach Middle School and Mission Bay High School (ID#33-0305920). FOPBSS is also known as the “Mission Bay High School Community Foundation.”
