The race takes place in the beautiful city of La Jolla, California and you'll see why this event is known as the best Half around. With ideal spring weather conditions, you'll be wishing this race would never end! Starting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the course follows a scenic coastal route before reaching the challenging climb to the summit of Torrey Pines State Park. Breathe in the fresh air as you hear the sounds of encouragement from on-lookers and helpful volunteers. Afer exploring the Torrey Pines, you'll continue down to the La Jolla Shores district and cross the finish line in the Ellen Browning Scripps Park. Once you cross that line, it's time to celebrate!

Experience Reviews


Disappointed & Unhappy

Mon Apr 29 15:48:13 PDT 2019

This is for the 5k review. The bus charter is great, however parking was still very difficult to locate in La Jolla. The hydration stations were extremely well placed for a 5k! KUDO's to that planning as it was the best hydration route for a 5k that I have done all year! The timing of runners was also delayed to where no data was being transmitted to the official time booth for results. All 5k times were delayed. I waited around, drank my beer, shopped for about an hour but still no results, so I went home. Other than that fun run, good after race event!

Great volunteers, safe well set up course. Disappointing announcer at finish line. Did not notice 1st female finisher in 5k. Only announced bib number of half marathon finisher, after over 2minutes after the finish provided his name. Reasonable to expect the finish line announcer to be prepared and understand important facts to announce real time

Who doesnt want to pay a good price for a run especially a half marathon. I always come here first for any runs that I am looking for and if it is the right location for the run I want to race in.
