The 2-Person San Diego Half Marathon Relay:
Run 6.55 miles each and then finish together!

The Course

The San Diego Relay has been designed to carry two runners over a spectacular course, while showcasing one of the world’s most beautiful cities! Leg 1 starts at Petco Park and winds through downtown to Harbor Drive, with views of San Diego Bay, San Diego’s skyline, Spanish Landing and Cancer Survivor Park. After arriving in Liberty Station leg 1 passes the baton to their relay partner in NTC Park. Leg 2 then runs past the Marine Corps Recruit Depot and up Washington Street, through Mission Hills and then Hillcrest. The last few miles coast downhill, passing the scenic palm trees that line Balboa Park. Finally, you’ll head back into downtown, where you will reunite with your partner for an unforgettable 5th Avenue finish together – featuring a live jumbotron and Gaslamp Block Party!
