Half Marathon Races Near Your La Jolla Home

La Jolla Community, News | 25th Apr 2012

The annual La Jolla Half Marathon and 5K is coming up!  Celebrating the 31st year of this community event which attracts more than 6,500 runners with homes in La Jolla and far beyond, the half marathon begins at the Del Mar Fairgrounds (participant shuttle access available from 5 to 6 a.m.) at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 29th and will finish at La Jolla Cove where shuttles will be available until 12 p.m.  The Half Marathon is reportedly sold out, but 5K is still open for registration, so plan on joining in the fun if you live in La Jolla.  Pets, baby joggers, strollers, bicycles, rollerskates, rollerblades, skateboards or other wheeled vehicles are not allowed on the course and “over the ear” earphones are not permitted as well.

Medals will be awarded to the top five finishers for each age group and  trophies will be awarded to the first Open division male and female finisher overall. Any Half Marathon finishers finishing in under three hours will receive a La Jolla Half  Marathon Finisher’s Medal, as well.  An after race party will take place following the race where a wide variety of food and drink and even a Beer Garden will be available for racers over 21. The awards celebration will begin at 10 a.m. and only racers in attendance can win the opportunity drawing, based on bib number and picture identification will be required for prize collection and admission to the beer garden.  100% of the race proceeds will be given to support youth, senior and community programs of the La Jolla Kiwanis Foundation.  For more information, please click here.
