Run Pick of the Month - La Jolla Half Marathon & 5K

Get 15% off registration - Use coupon code RunGuidesCC

The La Jolla Half Marathon and 5K, happening on May 18, 2024, are some of San Diego California’s most picturesque running races. 

Why do we like these runs? Here are a few reasons!

From start to finish these races offer runners a chance to experience the coast like never before. You get miles of sun-drenched coast, an inviting ocean, and perfect weather pretty much anytime of the year. Expect gorgeous views from Del Mar to the La Jolla Shores.

Get ready to soak up breathtaking views of waves crashing on the shoreline, surfers in the water, and thousands of inspired runners on the road. In our humble opinion, this is one of the best half marathon and 5K races in California.
