Costume Contest
Do you like to run dressed in your Berry best? Is your team all-in for a theme? Or maybe you jam out all alone? Dress up with a Strawberry theme, and join us after the run at the Tri-City Medical Center Main Stage at 9:30 am for our Runners’ Costume Contest! Fun prizes for the Berry best-dressed runners! Even if costumes aren’t your jam, join us to cheer for your favorite solo or team costumes.

Vista Strawberry Festival
After the race, stay and enjoy the renowned Vista Strawberry Festival with pie eating contests, carnival rides, vendors, entertainment and more!

Parking in and around downtown Vista will be limited. We recommend parking at the Vista County Courthouse (325 S. Melrose Drive) and taking our free event-provided shuttles. Shuttles will begin running at 6:30 am and will continue until 7 pm, leaving approximately every 15 minutes from in front of Starbucks in Vista Village (30 Main Street). DO NOT park in the Frazier Farms parking lot, as towing will be enforced during the Festival.
