Carlsbad Marathon

Submitted by runningpage on Mon, 07/12/2010 - 8:54pm

The full marathon and starts and finishes at Westfield Plaza Camino Real in Carlsbad. After the starter's gun goes off, marathoners will head for the coast passing the Buena Vista Lagoon through the village of Carlsbad to Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101). You'll head south on the 101 to Palomar Airport Road (PAR). After a 3 mile trip inland on you'll return to the coast and again head south on 101 to a quick U-turn near La Costa Avenue back up the coast to the finish line.

The marathon course is rolling. Much of it is along the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The highest point of elevation is 308 feet above sea level reached gradually between miles 5 and 9.

Carlsbad Half Marathon Course

This course is the fastest in the San Diego area and one of the fastest in the U.S. It starts and finishes at the same location as the marathon; however the courses are not the same. After the starter's gun goes off, you'll head to the ocean and Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101). You'll run south on the 101 to the turn around point at Break Water and then you'll head back to the finish line. The out-and-back course is gently rolling, with no major elevation changes. Run this course and you will see why some of the fastest half marathon times in the U.S. run here.
