Rock to Pier Run Returns for 53rd Annual Run with Half Marathon in Morro Bay

The Brian Waterbury 53rd Annual Rock to Pier Run will return to Morro Bay on July 22, this year featuring the half-marathon for the first time since 2019. Our local Morro Bay gym, Fitness Works, will lead a pre-race warmup to boost the energy of runners before the run begins at 9:00am. Participants will then enjoy the beautiful scenery as they go from the Morro Bay “Rock” beach area to the Cayucos Pier on the hard-packed sand. For those not completing the half-marathon run back to the rock, transportation will be back to the event area. Participants and families will then wind down for a post-race breakfast and music by the “Garden Party” band. The Central Valley Timing Company will track runners’ times, with prizes awarded to top finishers from a variety of age groups. For more information, go to the City of Morro Bay website at

www.morrobayca.gov where you can find links to register at our runsignup.com registration listing. We hope you join in and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere at this year’s Rock to Pier!
