Runners in the half marathon join those running the full marathon just a couple miles past the mid-way point of the 26.2-mile race, joining in between miles 15 and 16, along the stretch of the race that runs the Maria Ignacio Trail. The starting line for the half marathon lies at the Page Youth Center on Hollister, and takes runners west toward the trail for the first couple of miles. For the rest of the course, the half- and full-marathoners will share the same route, all the way in to the finish line at the campus of Santa Barbara City College.
