The world needs a big hug right now, join us this Saturday, March 3, in Balboa Park before "Finish Chelsea's Run".
Coe Lewis from our sister station 101.5 KGB-FM joins us to talk about the huge group hug taking place this Saturday before "Finish Chelsea's Run".
Here are the World's Biggest Group Hug details:
WHEN: Saturday, March 3, 2018
TIME: 7:15am - you'll need to be at the KGB tent area no later than 7:00 am (the earlier the better).
WHERE: Balboa Park, on the west side near 6th and Olive. Start line is at 6th and Palm and finish line is at Balboa Drive south of Quince. Look for the big KGB tent to meet up with Bob & Coe.
DIRECTIONS TO THE RACE & PARKING: From Interstate 5 south: Take Sassafras (Airport) exit. Turn left on Laurel heading east to the top of the hill. Look for free and metered street parking near and around the west side of Balboa Park and in available pay lots. From Highway 163 south: Take University exit. Turn right on University, then left on 4th Avenue. Once you near Balboa Park look for street parking. Do not attempt to drive to the race staging area from the east side of Balboa Park, as you will not be able to drive across the Laurel Street Bridge. There is metered street parking on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Avenues between Upas and Grape. We strongly encourage you to carpool if possible, and allow extra time to walk from your car to the event site.
RIDESHARE ON EVENT DAY We encourage you to use rideshare on event day! Soon we’ll be partnering with one of the leading rideshare companies to give you a discount for getting to and from the event!.
OUTLYING PARKING/SHUTTLES:Additional parking will be available on the east side of Balboa Park in the “Old Naval Hospital” parking lot at Park Boulevard and Presidents Way and in adjacent lots. Complimentary shuttle bus service from these areas will run from 6 to 7 a.m. with pick up from Presidents Way and Park Boulevard. Traffic in the area may be heavy so plan to arrive early and give yourself plenty of time.
