Thanks to what is only a slight change in elevation over the course of the race, San Luis Obispo’s City to the Sea Half Marathon is considered particularly hospitable to runners of all abilities, from beginners to experienced half-marathoners. The course for the race quite literally unfolds from the city to the ocean, taking runners south from the city streets of San Luis Obispo all the way to the coastline overlooking the Pacific Ocean, at Pismo Beach.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
