Good morning SoCal. Just FYI today in Carlsbad is going to be a mess. The Carlsbad 5000 is going on for most of the day in the “village” of Carlsbad. Basically if you are near Carlsbad Village Drive (Elm, don’t call me old) and Carlsbad Blvd (PCH 101) you aren’t going anywhere.
The runners are taking over. There is no parking. Just go somewhere else unless you are cheering on friends.
Good luck y’all!
