Organic Catering Company feeds hundreds at the Carlsbad 5000
Eco Caters put together a meal to help the runners push through the “ Fastest 5k.” The Organic Catering company put together a filling continental breakfast of Mixed Pastries, Muffins, Danishes, Assorted Bagels with Cream Cheese and Honey Whipped Butter, and a Fresh Fruit Platter. After the race the participants were treated to an all organic lunch; catered by San Diego caterer, Eco Caters, of our Farmers Market Salad including, “Best of the Market” greens and vegetables with a house vinaigrette dressing, and filling sandwiches, including: Grilled Free Range Chicken Breast on Ciabatta with Sun-dried Tomato, Onion, Basil Pesto Mayo, and Spinach, a vegetarian Grilled Portabella Mushroom on a French Roll with Grilled Red Pepper Aioli, Creole Mustard, and Herb Mix, and Grilled Organic Sirloin on Ciabatta with Caramelized Onion, Tomato, Fresh Herb Mustard, and Mixed Greens. The Carlsbad Catering team helped them finish off their meal of champions with Fruit, Cookies, and Brownies.
Since 1986, tens of thousands of runners and walkers have come to the Village of Carlsbad to run along the flat 3.1 mile course, whisking by the Pacific Ocean before turning down Carlsbad Village Drive for a downhill race to the finish with thousands of spectators cheering you on. The 5K distance may have given way to the more popular marathon and half marathon endurance events in the past ten years, but don’t let that fool you, the Carlsbad 5000 is still the World’s Fastest 5K, and site of the legendary post-race Party by the Sea! The Carlsbad 5000 is called “The Fastest 5k” because it is a super quick, flat course. To this day it holds 16 world records! This inspirational photo was taken at the race by Ollie Neglerio. Congratulations to all the athletes from San Diego caterer, Eco Caters!
