Runners start and finish the out-and-back course for the San Lorenzo River Half Marathon at Harvey West Park, near the southern end of the much larger Henry Cowell Redwoods Park, just a short drive north from downtown Santa Cruz. From there, runners will wind their way north along the park’s Spring, Rincon, Big Rock Hole, River and Eagle Creek, Lookout and Harvey West trails. (Note: Only the “out” route is shown below; runners will run the same route in reverse on the way back.)
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.
