The miles are pleasure, not agony, when you run along the beautiful shore in the La Jolla Half Marathon in San Diego on April 23, 2017. It's one of the most scenic racecourses you'll ever master.
La Jolla is known as one of San Diego's most beautiful neighborhoods, and the La Jolla Half Marathon gives you a chance to appreciate it in a brand new way. The race starts at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and follows the coast before rising into the hills at Torrey Pines State Park. Then it wends its way through La Jolla Shores before ending at La Jolla Cove, where you can celebrate crossing the finish line in the beer garden. There'll be live music to keep the mood festive. Everyone who makes it all the way through gets a finisher's medal.
There's also a 5K run/walk option for those who'd rather run a shorter distance. Whichever race you run, take time to explore the vendors at the Expo; there'll be lots of great products to help you compete at your best.
The race will take you through a beautiful part of San Diego, but you'll likely be moving too fast to really take it in. So extend your visit to San Diego and slow down to explore thoroughly. Humphreys Half Moon Inn is located on quiet Shelter Island near top San Diego attractions like SeaWorld. Plus a dip in our pool and spa is a refreshing way to eliminate any post-race soreness. You can relax, enjoy a beautiful waterfront sunset, and bask in your achievement.
