The Low Tide Ride & Stride is Coronado Rotary Club’s biggest fundraiser with a majority of the proceeds going to help support local combat-wounded veterans and first responders. With hundreds of thousands of dollars being donated over the years, the event has become an important to our local military community and first responders.

In recognition of the achievements of the Low Tide Ride & Stride, the event has received both the San Diego Military Advisory Council’s Achievement Award and the Armed Services YMCA Admiral St George Award.

 

So Why the Course Change?

If you have participated in past Low Tide Ride & Stride events, you may have noticed military and civilian volunteers lining the beach along the State Park and Navy Base. They were protecting the Least Tern’s nesting grounds. You see, the Least Terns are an endangered species and their numbers continue to dwindle. More than ever, we must protect these nesting grounds. Even the military must limit their training on the beach during nesting season March – September. According to the Audubon Society, since 1970 we have lost half of all bird populations globally. By changing the course of the race, Rotary is protecting critical nesting grounds for the Least Tern and Snowy Plover. We are excited the new race course — less hassle, family friendly, and fun at Sunset Park!  We can’t think of a better way to bike, run, walk and celebrate the 25th Anniversary Low Tide Ride & Stride on Father’s Day Weekend.
