Please join Nicole & Joe for a March to May Gut Check Fitness & Attendance Challenge in effort to get motivated for the warm sunny beach weather ahead. It will be a contest that will consist of attendance, fitness, referrals, races and overall attitude with points awarded for all the above.

- Saturday attendance - 2 points

- attend a race - 2 points
- maintain a positive attitude - 1 point (weekly)
- 450 or above Gut Check Badge Test - 5 points

The Challenge kicks off March 11th (Joe’s Birthday 12th) and will end ON Nicole’s 40th Birthday May 4th. Whoever has the MOST points on May 4th is the WINNER. Sage & Carmel Valley weekly classes will be competing & Moonlight & the 9’ers classes to make it fair. Also, Gut Check LA is joining us as well so watch out. We will have a good amount of prizes for the WINNERS of each including Injinji, Grabbagreen, RRS, Paolo Massage and most importantly, increased health and fitness. VALUE = PRICELESS.

Remember, true fitness is not look-at-me aesthetics, it’s a lifestyle change, a behavior modification and a long lasting healthy way of life. Who needs a silly detox or a fruitcake Keto diet when you all you really need is a GUT CHECK. Are you ready for one?! Let’s do this!

12791 Sorrento Valley Road San Diego CA, 92130 Map

Join us for our Annual 10K Memorial Day Flag Run along the beach from Carmel Valley to Cardiff. It's not a race but more of a military style formation done at a moderate pace as we take turns handing off the American Flag. Always an incredible event and very patriotic way to pay tribute to those that have paid the ultimate price to ensure our freedom. Please register here:

We will meet 8:45 AM at the Goodwill Drop Off Parking lot here -
Address: 12791 Sorrento Valley Road San Diego CA, 92130

Then run along the beach to end close to Tower 13. Last year we were fortunate enough to have a special guest play the National Anthem on his violin and heard that he just might make a return performance this year. You don't want to miss that!

Many of us then grab lunch at Tower 13 across the street. If you'd like to join us please let me know so we can make reservations.

How to get back to your car?
- Carpool or coordinate with someone else.
- You can take the train.
- Grab a taxi.
- Gut Check style - run back!

The event is FREE of course but we will be collecting donations for the incredible charity that we support, the CAF - Operation Rebound: CAF.
