A powerful winter storm is expected to hit San Diego over the weekend, prompting organizers of the 1 Wave Challenge and Torrey Pines Adventure Run to postpone both events until Saturday, Jan. 28.

With support from San Diego City Councilmember Barbara Bry's office, organizers worked with Park and Recreation Department staff to secure a special event permit for the new date.

Start times for both events have been adjusted in anticipation of an early morning high tide:

- 1 Wave Challenge will begin at 10 a.m. (Registration will open at 8:30 a.m.)

- Torrey Pines Adventure Run will start at Noon (Registration will open at 9 a.m.)

- Surfers and runners will be treated to a beach-side concert by San Diego rock band Sandollar beginning at 11:30 a.m.

- Events will take place at La Jolla Shores, near Kellogg Park

“Surfers respect the power of Mother Nature,” said Boys to Men Co-Founder Joe Sigurdson. “To be safe, we won’t be paddling out or running the beach this weekend.”

“San Diego Councilwoman Barbara Bry and the Parks and Recreation Department staff couldn’t have been more supportive of our change-of-plans,” he added. “We’re grateful for their cooperation. The community is welcomed to join us next Saturday, Jan. 28, at La Jolla Shores, as two signature charitable events tap into the excitement of the closing days of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines."
