More than a race - Carlsbad is an unforgettable experience.

Carlsbad is a winter marathon and half marathon unlike any other. From our ideal weather conditions to our spectacular coastal course, our award winning event will wow you. Our 26 fully staffed course support stations, continuous entertainment and unsurpassed volunteer support are just a few of our outstanding features. We also offer each participant a gender specific long-sleeve technical fabric shirt, virtual goody bag, spectacular finisher's medal, post-race mylar blanket, refreshments (including chocolate milk!) and much more. Our boutique style event with an emphasis on quality and individual service sets us apart from the mega marathons. Register early to save money and your spot - our races will sell out!
