San Diego’s 16th annual Race for the Cure® is one of the largest running events in Southern California. Started in 1995, we have grown from 2,039 participants to more than 15,000 in 2011, and have raised more than $12 million for local breast care services.

Sleep In for the Cure®

If you don’t feel like waking up on the morning of November 2, but you still want to show your support of Komen San Diego, this registration type is perfect for you.  Support Komen San Diego from home or from the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla! If you are staying at La Valencia, the cost of your room covers your registration (click here to reserve your room).  If you are staying at home, register for Sleep In for the Cure and your T-shirt, bib and door hanger will be mailed to you before the Race.  You must register by 10/18/13 so we can ship it out in time.


New and returning volunteers are encouraged to get involved. All volunteers will receive a T-shirt! Click here to get registered as a volunteer.

Survivors’ Celebration

Our Survivor’s Celebration begins by the main stage at 7:30 a.m.  Don’t miss this very special celebration featuring our inspirational annual survivor parade, Honorary Survivor ceremony and entertainment.


Emotional. Memorable. Motivational. I AM THE CURE is Komen’s new rallying cry encouraging women and men to take an active role in their breast health. The program speaks to the importance of early detection — the best defense against breast cancer — and provides simple, action-oriented messages that Race participants can take home and put into practice. Listen for the cheers as you walk or run and JOIN IN!
