42nd Annual CdM Scenic 5K and 2-Mile Fun Walk attract record number participants for local festivities

On Saturday, June 1, Corona del Mar celebrated the 42nd Annual CdM Scenic 5K & 2-Mile Fun Walk uniting generations of local families and friends of all ages! The race that started in 1982 as a grassroots event designed to promote Corona del Mar for its charming and “scenic” streets, and to generate foot traffic for local business and restaurant owners, has proven a successful mission for the Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce.
