Runners start the loop course for the Thrive Half Marathon at Ski Beach in Vacation Isle. From there, they’ll head north across Mission Bay and then continue the half marathon around the bay, taking runners past Sea World San Diego and crossing over onto Vacation Isle, where they’ll cross the finish line. Much of the half marathon features views of the bay and the entire course is fast and flat, as expected for a coastal race.
