Thanks to its near-sea-level location along the roads that run alongside San Diego Bay, most of the San Diego Half Marathon route is fast and flat. Runners will start the race at Petco Park, near the city’s downtown and just blocks from Balboa Park. From there, runners will head northwest along the bay through the city, running for a loop around Harbor Island and into the Liberty Station district, where they’ll make the turnaround and then head back into downtown, followed by the finish line under the Gaslamp Arch.
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.
