Fire Run will bring street closures Sunday

Several La Jolla streets will be closed Sunday morning as the annual San Diego Fire Run/Walk winds its way from its starting point on Prospect Street to the finish line south of Felspar Street.

Race officials told La Jolla community group representatives over the past few weeks that nearly 3,000 runners and spectators are expected for the event which benefits five local nonprofits: San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, Surfrider Foundation, Make-a-Wish, Jeans 4 Justice and Volunteer San Diego.

The beneficiary list was expanded this year and participants are able to pick their favorite cause to benefit from their registration, said Scott Chisholm, CEO of sponsor StayClassy.

The event starts at 8 a.m. over a four-mile downhill course. For details go to
