Half Marathon Course Details


The half marathon course is one of the fastest in the San Diego area and the U.S. It starts and finishes at the same location as the marathon; however, the races have different start times and the courses are not the same. After the starter's gun goes off, half marathoners will pass the Buena Vista Lagoon as they head out to Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101) and along the ocean to the turnaround point at Breakwater Road and back to the finish line. The out-and-back course is gently rolling, with no major elevation changes. Run this course and you will see why some of the fastest half marathon times in the U.S. are run here.
