The Prettiest 13.1 Miles You’ll Ever Run

The April 27 La Jolla Half Marathon


Published:

The April 27 La Jolla Half Marathon, a stunner for runners and spectators alike, explores the San Diego coastline starting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and ending at La Jolla Cove’s Ellen Browning Scripps Park. (A great place to watch: the island in the middle of North Torrey Pines Road.) Net proceeds from the Half are donated to the La Jolla Kiwanis Foundation, which supports programs such as high school key clubs and youth sports, while a $1,000 cash prize awaits the first man and woman to break the course record—1:06:23.2 and 1:16:52, respectively. But everyone’s a winner: A live music festival and beer garden will be waiting for runners at the finish line. $90 for individual registration.
