The 2020  and 2021 By-the-Bay 3K have been canceled due to COVID-19. Our next scheduled BSIM races are April 22-24, 2022

Pacific Grove’s  By-the-Bay 3K is a fun run on an out-and-back course next to the Monterey Bay that is held on the Saturday of Marathon race weekend. Over 5,000 school children, along with friends and family, take part in the annual Schools’ Competition as a fundraiser for their school. The 3K is open to the general public and is a great tune-up for one of Sunday’s longer distance events.
