The San Diego Half Marathon is excited to announce that its 2nd annual race will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2013.
Building on a hugely successful inaugural race, the 2013 event will feature the same amazing start on Tony Gwynn Drive under the Omni Sky Bridge and will follow a signature scenic course that showcases San Diego’s beautiful bayfront and historic communities. New for 2013 will be a ‘5K’ course, a shorter, fun-filled option with the same starting line and some of the same breathtaking views as the half marathon. Both races will have a new, downtown San Diego finish, featuring a live jumbotron and a “Celebrate San Diego Food & Brew Festival.”
“The San Diego Half Marathon & 5K is an event for the community, by the community and a race for runners, by runners,” said Susan Briggs, executive director of the San Diego Half Marathon. “Over 800 volunteers, our amazing team of Operation Captains and experienced vendor partners made the inaugural race more successful than we could have hoped for. We are looking forward to having the running and volunteer communities join us again in 2013 for another premier half marathon and 5K experience.”
“Legacy & Friends” special pricing for the half marathon and “First 500” special pricing for the 5K are available for a limited time. Learn more at sdhalfmarathon.com and get important updates via the event’s Facebook page or Twitter feed.
The inaugural 2012 San Diego Half Marathon was an overwhelming success, with more than $100,000 donated directly from the race for community service projects including Lake Murray Playground Project, San Diego Police Department Communications Division Kitchen/Break Room renovation, Toys for Joy and Robb Field and Hickman Field upgrades. Additionally, through an innovative fundraising approach, participating runners are able to raise millions of dollars for the local charity of their choice while creating goodwill for all San Diegans.
