The 16th Annual California Coast Run is ON for October 12-14, 2018. For the 16th year in a row, the host hotel will be the Courtesy Inn of San Simeon, CA.
As most of you are aware, much of the HWY 1 Pacific Coast Highway has been closed for many months while repairs progressed due to massive slides caused by storms that pummeled the coast. But we have good news! Cal-trans has announced that repairs are 2 months ahead of schedule! Previous estimates had us concerned about the re-opening date and the timing and route of our annual event. With this latest update we have full confidence that we can return to our traditional route along one of the most beautiful stretches of coastal highway anywhere in the world!
Let's celebrate the re-opening with a bang! With 4 months of lead time let's get the word out! We are hoping that everyone will mark their calendars now and make plans to make this 16th annual Fiero event one to be remembered!
It's not too early to make your reservations! This must be the absolute best deal on the coast. If we can sell out the 20 room block we can get TWO nights on the coast for only $99. Even if we don't achieve that goal we are still at the incredibly low rate of $109 for both nights! You just can't lose!
Courtesy Inn of San Simeon 9450 Castillo Drive San Simeon, CA 93452 Call 1-800-555-5773 (toll free) to make your reservation. Tell them you are with the COAST RUN group to get our special rate. Remember, you must CALL and reference the COAST RUN group rate to get the deal! For 15 years, we have paid $99 for the entire weekend. If we can have 20 rooms booked by September 12, we can have that same rate again. If not, the rate will be $109 for the entire weekend. Still a fantastic price!

Lots of good vibes and exceptionally fine weather. Saturday on the long pier at San Simeon, just an hour before sunset, and not any of the usual "refrigerator-like" air and blustery chill breezes as evening approached on the California coast. Comfortably warm air that endured until even after sunset.
