From the organizer

Organizer's website

This is the most scenic half marathon in southern California and certainly one to add to your bucket list. This event began as a marathon in the 60s and converted to a half marathon, with a 10k and 5k too, in 2014. This is tough race, but the rewards lie in the iconic and picturesque scenery lining the course.

With limited capacity, this race sells out quick, so get your entries in now.
