SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's a great weekend to run, rock, or reach for that second bowl of chili...

This weekend will see the end of the long-running Vans Warped Tour at SDCCU Stadium. The punk rock concert brings a ton of acts to San Diego, including performances this year by The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Simple Plan, and more.

Also this weekend, the Tony Gwynn 5.5K returns to a new location at Lake Poway. Why 5.5? Gwynn was known to hit baseballs between third base and shortstop, known as the 5.5 gap.
