2nd Annual San Diego Half Marathon
If you missed it in 2013 or you’re dying to run it again, the 2nd Annual San Diego Holiday Half Marathon is the same fast 13.1 mile course that starts in Rancho Penasquitos, along Carmel Mountain Rd (your only ‘real’ hill at mile 1.5), along the 56 bike path and finishes at the beautiful Torrey Pines State Beach. The race includes a 711-foot net elevation drop which also makes it a personal best candidate.
When: Sunday, Dec. 28 | 5am – 12pm
Where: Torrey Pines State Reserve | 12600 N Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla, CA 92037
