The Premier San Diego Half Marathon - 38 Years Running!
The 38th annual America's Finest City Half Marathon is run on a fast, scenic, point-to-point course. The race starts at the historic Cabrillo National Monument at the tip of Point Loma with its world-renowned vistas of San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, follows scenic San Diego Bay and Harbor Island along the Embarcadero to the Star of India, winds through downtown San Diego and ends in beautiful Balboa Park.
AFC is recognized as one of the country’s top half marathons. Last year the event drew runners from 47 states and 16 foreign countries. There is also a 5K held in Balboa Park, a 2-day fitness expo, and post-race festival. The half marathon is limited to 8,000 entrants and the 5K is limited to 1,500 entrants.
Due to permitting restrictions, there is a 3-hour time limit to complete the half marathon.
Wheelchair competitors must contact firstname.lastname@example.org for qualification and registration instructions.
