RACE START LINE/COURSE
Runner start 8 am / Walkers start 8:10 am
This is a sanctioned USAT&F 4-mile course. Our start line is at One Park Blvd. at Harbor Dr. between the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and the San Diego Convention Center. The course travels south along Harbor Dr. to Cesar E. Chavez Pkwy. Participants head east to National Ave., then up and over the Coronado Bay Bridge. The race finishes in Coronado’s Tidelands Park. Expect flat streets, an incline up the bridge and a decline down the bridge. Walkers are encouraged to bring cameras to take some great photos of San Diego and Coronado from on top of the bridge! Baby strollers, wheelchairs and guide dogs are permitted. Skateboards, bikes, in-line skates, race wheelchairs and pets (with the exception of service animals) are prohibited. All participants must be on the bridge by 8:45 am, approximately 1 mile, to allow for the reopening of traffic lanes.
Only those registered as a TIMED RUNNER will receive a timing chip with their bib number by mail. Place your timing chip on your shoe. Either foot is acceptable. No need to be head of the pack! Your official race time begins when you step on the timing mat directly under the CHIP TIMING scaffolding. Keep your timing chip as a souvenir!
