The San Diego Relay has been designed to carry two runners over a spectacular 13.1-mile course, while showcasing one of the world’s most beautiful cities! Leg 1 starts between Petco Park and the San Diego Convention Center on palm-tree lined Harbor Drive and continues with spectacular views of the USS Midway Museum, San Diego Bay, San Diego’s skyline, Harbor Island, Spanish Landing Park and Cancer Survivor Park. After arriving in historic Liberty Station, Leg 1 will pass the baton to their relay partner at NTC Park (formerly, the Naval Training Center). Leg 2 then runs past the Marine Corps Recruit Depot. Next, it’s up Washington Street through the neighborhoods of Mission Hills and Hillcrest. The last few miles coast gradually downhill, passing beautiful Balboa Park and lead right back into downtown to re-unite with your partner for an epic finish together inside Petco Park!
The San Diego Half Marathon is limited to 7,500 participants.
