City to the Sea Half Marathon brings in $90,000 for Cuesta College Athletics

The 18th Annual City to the Sea half marathon on Sunday raised $90,000 for Cuesta College Athletics.

Funds will be used to help build new facilities, purchase equipment, and provide transportation and lodging for athletes.

The half marathon sold out a month in advance, and 2000 people ran. The 5K sold out two weeks in advance, and 500 participants ran in it.

Race Director, Brian Locher, says he's been directing the race for five years, and this is the most successful it's ever been. He also says the event's title sponsor, Running Warehouse, sold more product than in any year past.

The race takes runners from San Luis Obispo to Dinosaur Caves in Pismo Beach.

In addition to being a fundraiser for Cuesta College Athletics, there were also other community and charity organizations at the event.

Team World Vision was at the event. They had 200 runners participate. World Vision is a non-profit dedicated to providing clean water to people in need.

One of their team members, Pastor Ron Salsbury of New Life Community Church, has Stage 2 Lymphoma. He starts chemotherapy on Tuesday, but he still participated in the run. To learn more about Team World Vision and how you can donate, click here.
