San Diego Holiday Half Marathon
The San Diego Holiday Half Marathon is the same fast 13.1 mile course that now starts on Penasquitos Drive at the NEW START LINE in front of the Hotel Karlan (formerly, the Doubletree Golf Resort). The race is on a beautiful course from Rancho Penasquitos down the 56 bike path to the San Diego coastline at Torrey Pines State Beach. The race is capped at 3,500 runners which makes for an enjoyable and spacious course.
This race has a time cap of 3 hrs and 15 minutes. The race WILL sell out, so register early!
This is a point-to-point race. Runners will be bused from Torrey Pines State Beach east parking lot to Rancho Penasquitos either pre or post race. Race begins in Rancho Penasquitos and heads South on Carmel Mountain Rd. The only real major hill is in the beginning (mile 1.5)…piece of cake!
Then all runners travel 9 miles down the 56 Bike Path enjoying spectacular views and a gentle rolling downhill course. Last 4 miles are relatively flat with gentle rollers as you head towards the finish on Carmel Valley Rd to Torrey Pines State Beach. This course could be a potential PR!
