'City to the Sea' attracts record crowds

A record number of runners turned out for the 16th annual City to the Sea half-marathon.

The event attracted 17-hundred people from around the state and beyond, who wanted to get in on the beautiful 13.1 mile run.

Participants start in Downtown, San Luis Obispo and make their way to the coast. They take in the sights, and get cheered on by friends, family members and supporters along the route.

Runners crossed the finish line at Dinosaur Park in Pismo Beach.

"It's the beautiful Central Coast," said one participant. "To be able to soak it in, and see the vineyards, the rolling hills and the beach, you can't get any better than that."

Many of them said the volunteers and camaraderie among runners keep them coming back year after year.

The event raises around 30 thousand dollars, which goes toward keeping the Track and Field, and Cross Country teams up and running at Cuesta College.
