The San Diego Half Marathon

The San Diego Half Marathon is a premier race that celebrates the beauty and uniqueness of San Diego, while raising money to help its communities. The San Diego Half Marathon is doing business as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) with all net proceeds going towards community service projects and select charitable causes in San Diego.  In addition to the funding, we hope to catalyze volunteerism as a way to help hurting communities throughout our city. The San Diego Half Marathon will also benefit additional
 charities by enabling runners to raise money for any or all of the select causes that are important to them.

Our Mission

To promote community service initiatives and causes that catalyze volunteerism and charitable giving as a way to transform lives while providing a premier, professionally managed running and entertainment event that leverages and celebrates the unique qualities of San Diego.

Our Team

The San Diego Half Marathon executive team includes over 130 years of executive business management, marketing, and project management experience from a variety of companies and industries including Qualcomm, the 
United States Navy, Nautical Enterprises Inc., Hughes Network Systems, and SeaWorld. The executive team and operations team has experience with running events, large festivals and concert production. Additionally, our race day operations are being performed by companies with proven track records in San Diego and beyond for marathons and half marathons ranging from 8,000 participants to over 30,000 participants including, but not limited to, areas such as timing, traffic, photography, and course logistics.

Our Difference

The San Diego Half Marathon is inspired by Do Something! Make Your Life Count by Miles McPherson. We strive to make a meaningful and measurable,
 positive difference in the lives of our community and beyond. Ensuring transparency and to maintain the integrity of the mission and financials of the San Diego Half Marathon, an independent financial audit by a third party accounting firm will be conducted on an annual basis. We invite you to embrace the vision and mission of this one-of-a-kind race and event, and we look forward to helping the communities of San Diego for years to come. Celebrate San Diego!
