It is fitting that when translated into Spanish, La Jolla means “the jewel,” because La Jolla truly is the diamond of the West Coast. La Jolla has become the embodiment of luxury, class and style in San Diego. The chic allure of La Jolla’s avenues has drawn the finest automobiles to this coastal town for the tenth year at the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance and The La Jolla Motor Car Classic at the Concours.
The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance features various types of fine automobile gems. Past years have showcased horseless carriages, Italian marques, British marques, Woodies, 50’s classics, American sports cars (with a salute to GM on their 100th anniversary), and the automobiles of Carroll Shelby. Spectators from all over the nation come to the breathtaking shores of La Jolla to view their favorite classics. This year, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be tipping its hat to some of the world’s finest Classics: Rolls Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, Cadillac, and of course Duesenberg. We hope once again that if diamonds are forever, then cars are timeless.
According to Webster, “Concours” comes from the French, and means “a crowd or confluence of things; also a park promenade.” The term conjures up romantic visions of beautiful women in haute couture in a park-like setting surrounded by sparkling coaches, glistening groomed horses, gorgeous flowers, champagne, fine art and sculpture, and later, by the finest automotive art.
The La Jolla Half Marathon is one of America's most picturesque and beautiful point-to-point races. Starting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the course follows a scenic coastal route before reaching the challenging climb to the summit of Torrey Pines State Park. After leaving the park, the course rolls atop Torrey Pines mesa, continues down through the residential district of La Jolla Shores, and finishes in Ellen Browning Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove. The La Jolla Half Marathon is race #2 in the Half Marathon Triple Crown Series.

Relay For Life of La Jolla is an annual 24 hour event to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society. This year we are holding it on June 4th and 5th at Muirlands Middle School, located at 1056 Nautilus St, La Jolla, CA 92037, from 9am to 9am.
While Relay is a 24 hour event and we do encourage our teams to camp out overnight, participants are welcome to come for any duration of the event to take turns walking, or running, around the track. We will be holding different ceremonies throughout the event to honor those who have been affected by cancer, as well as having a variety of entertainment and fundraisers. Please check our website as we get closer to Relay for the schedule of events.
We are always looking for volunteers and new Event Leadership Team members for anyone wishing to get involved.
