*March 21, 2021, update:

At this time we do not have a viable path to approval for any event date, as event guidelines still have not yet been approved by the State of California or our local authorities. However, other large outdoor events are being approved, including large groups at baseball games and theme parks. 

Therefore, we are working on an early summer date option for our 2021 event. We know we can safely host the San Diego Half Marathon within the current guidelines established for other outdoor events. Given the lead times and logistics to put on a half marathon, however, we will need advance approval to ensure we can move forward. We are getting closer, but are not quite there yet.

We will continue to post regular updates on our home page and will send an email to our past and present participant list with any significant updates.

Thank you for your encouragement, patience, and resilience. We can’t wait to run San Diego with you!
