New for 2022 is the ability to simply log your minutes whether you're in the gym, surfing, yoga or simply enjoying a bit of mindfulness relaxation. We'll celebrate you logging 1,000, 2,500, 4,000 or all 5,000 minutes over the 14 weeks of summer! 

As you progress up the coast we'll send you milestone emails and digital badges. Plus, regardless of  your summer mileage goal, if you hit it early you'll be able to keep going with the new Endless Summer feature. This is your summer, go get it!


We'll also be hosting weekly challenges all summer long with prizes available from our partners.

PLUS – We're also hosting for the first time the California Coast 500 Triple Crown! Everyone completing 500 run/walk miles, 500 bike miles and 5,000 cross-training minutes, will be eligible for an amazing Run Local prize package, including race entries for our upcoming live events!

This year's California Coast 500 will feature new additions for the competitive type:

  • First: be the first to reach San Francisco  based on the Memorial Day start.The Top 3 first to 500 finishers per gender will win a Run Local prize. 
  • Fastest: reach SF the fastest based on # of days no matter what your start day is (not average pace per run)
  • Furthest: With the new Endless Summer feature, you can keep logging your miles and competing in weekly challenges all Summer long! Who can log the most?

In 2022 we have partnered with Race Roster to simply use the same account you registered with for the event to manually enter your activities. 

Want to sync a device or track your miles on a GPS-enabled app? No problem. With Race Roster you can connect to RunKeeper and sync the following popular devices:

  • Apple Watch
  • Garmin
  • FitBit
  • TomTom MySports
  • & the RunKeeper app itself

You are also able to sync non-mileage activity from RunKeeper such as Yoga, etc.

Strava power user? While there is no direct connection, for those comfortable with tech integrations, you can sync your Strava activities directly to RunKeeper (and thus the CA Coast 500) using Zapier. Please note that this method has not been officially tested and is not supported by the platforms.
