La Jolla Half Marathon & Shores 5K
Del Mar, CA, United States

The La Jolla Half Marathon is one of America's most picturesque and beautiful point-to-point races. Starting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, the course follows a scenic coastal route before reaching the challenging climb to the summit of Torrey Pines State Park. The course then rolls atop Torrey Pines mesa, continues down through residential La Jolla Shores, and finishes at La Jolla Cove.

For those interested in a shorter option, the La Jolla Shores 5K offers a mostly downhill course and features some of the most scenic views of the last 3.1 miles of the half marathon course.

  • Did the event in 2017

    I was really excited to travel to Ca from Massachusetts to visit and ride in San Diego! I have never been to the area before, but have friends who moved there and talk about how bike friendly the area is.
    I arrived Friday at SD airport and picked up my rental car, rental bike from Nytro Multisport in Encinitas. I then made my way to Oceanside Pier for the packet pickup and expo. Oh!I was so excited with the ocean views, breeze, temps and just in awe :)
    We received a nice goodie bag with some coupons, and a pint glass :) I picked up my cycling jersey, which is sweet.
    There was no stress since its not a race, its a ride.
    Saturday morning 6:50am start was just beautiful, course was well marked, aid stations stocked with everything you need, and enthusiastic volunteers.
    Finish line had medals, bike valet, food trucks, beer tent, live music and more.
    I have a full review with more photos on my blog.
    I highly recommend this beautiful coastal course, as it offers 25, 50 and 100 mile options, at a very no stress level. Follow their Facebook and Instagram sites to stay updated, and they have contests on entries, shirts, gift certificates and more.
    Put this destination ride on your list. There's nothing like riding the coast of Ca!

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Really fun race. I did this coming off a half Ironman and had dead legs. That said this was a totally fun event. The event is super well organized. We had gobs of encouragers on the route. The aid stations were plentiful. We even had a place to keep warm while we waited at the start. I will do this event for years to come.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    My biggest complaint was with the course. I honestly dont think you could put more rolling hills in a course, combine that with the fact that you run along the freeway for 85% of the course and you find yourself struggling not to walk. Nothing helps distract you from the fact that you're running 13 miles on this course. Seriously! There's nothing to look at the whole way.As for organization it was okay up until bag pick up. Then you can expect to spend an average of 30-40 minutes while they look through unorganized bags in a Uhaul. I get that there were 4000+ people, but I shouldn't have to wait that long at bag pick up.Overall it was an okay race. They did a good job pumping it up. And the vendors were awesome. But I dont think I'd reccomend this one to a friend.

What you need to know about Running Events

Running is the world’s most accessible sport. Park runs, colour runs, 5k, 10k, half marathons, marathons and ultras — all you need is a pair of trainers and off you go. Running events are hugely popular on Let’s Do This and it’s a sociable sport, so get some friends involved and achieve something extraordinary.

If you’re starting small, the 5k and 10k events are great fun and definitely worth doing even if you’re training for a bigger challenge further down the line. Getting used to the atmosphere of an event is important. You’re so much more likely to hit a better time if there’s a crowd cheering you on, people in fancy dress and a big celebration at the finish line.

Find local Running races

Today, with international organisations, local clubs and national events to choose from, there are thousands of races to discover, and we want to help you find them quickly and easily. Below you’ll find selections by running type, running location and some exceptional events to take part in.
