Hilly and challenging — the course has “several major hills,” race organizers report — the La Jolla Half Marathon features some of the state’s most scenic views anywhere along the Southern California coast. The race starts in the parking lot of the Del Mar Fairgrounds and finishes in Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove Beach, and features some of its biggest hills around the half-way point, along Torrey Pines Park Road.
