Course Map: Seaside Half Marathon

Runners start the 13.1-mile course for this long, flat and fast race at Emma Wood State Beach Group Campground near both Surfers Point Park and Seaside Park, where the race gets its name. From there, the course heads first onto the bike path, through Emma Wood State Beach before joining up with Highway 101 for the long stretch out to the halfway turnaround, near Javon Canyon. After that, runners retrace their steps back to the finish line at the campground.

    Just ran the course as of 02/16/15 Excellent views of the Pacific both Northbound and Southbound! Some mild but rather long climbs, not entirely LEVEL. Very coarse pavement in some places, no water sources, no trash cans, numerous sites of homeless people’s trash and refuse. Many areas of busy traffic close to running course. Rather remote in some areas and exposure to elements (Sun, wind, glare, can be extreme). Suggest sun block, possibly a light wind breaker and lots of fluids! My Safety rating on a scale of 1-10, about 7. Have a great run!
