The Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon and 1/2 announced today that the marathon and half marathon courses will be revamped and have a new finish line at Waterfront Park.
Both races will continue to start at Balboa Park. The half marathon will go through Hillcrest, North Park and Normal Heights, before finishing at the new Waterfront Park in downtown. The full marathon course will be unveiled at a later date.
“Nothing says San Diego like a finish line on San Diego Bayfront,” said Ken Schulte, Marathon Course Director. “Waterfront Park keeps us true to our roots of finishing downtown and will offer some breathtaking views of San Diego Bay and the downtown skyline. Runners taking on the half marathon can expect a fast course and mostly downhill route highlighting some of San Diego’s most eclectic neighborhoods. This new route promises to be a party from start to finish.”
The marathon and half marathon will take place on Sunday, June 5, part of a larger weekend of running. The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego 5K presented by Brooks will take place on Saturday, June 4.
