Race Information

This Monterey Bay Half Marathon is a weekend of events including a two-day Health & Fitness Expo, the Pacific Grove Lighthouse 5K, the By-the-Bay 3K and a fun finish festival following the race! The Monterey Bay Half Marathon course is an out-and-back course beginning in historic downtown Monterey, running along Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, and next to the beautiful Pacific Grove shoreline. The course features scenic views of waves crashing on rocky beaches, beautiful Victorian-era homes, and frequent sightings of aquatic life.

Celebrate your finish with family and friends at the downtown Custom House Plaza-Monterey State Historical Park at the post-race Finish Village, where you can visit the Treadmill Recovery Center, enjoy a free beer at the Lagunitas Brewing tent and watch the Awards Ceremony.
