Runners start the out-and-back loop route for the San Diego Beach & Bay race just down from the Hilton San Diego Resorts & Spa overlooking Mission Bay. From there, they’ll make a loop around the bay, passing by Sea World, Belmont Park, Pacific Beach and Crown Point along the way. The half marathon is almost all flat, with very small rises in elevation here and there, thanks to its location near the waterfront, and runners will cross the finish line close to where they started.
