Salt Creek Half Marathon

April 21, 2013 · Dana Point, CA

Distance: 10K, 13.1 miles, 1K kids run, 5K

Salt Creek Beach Park is a beautiful venue with a perfect blend of sandy beaches, large grass areas and recreational trails. All races use the Salt Creek Regional Corridor Trail; the trail is concrete and blacktop and even offers several stretches with softer terrain next to it.

The Half-Marathon is a two loop course; participants of the 10K will complete one loop while the 5K participants complete 1/2 of the first loop. The Kids 1K Run heads south on the utility road along the beach for .5K then returns to the finish line. This is a scenic course that will offer beginning and experienced runners a challenge! Runners can expect to see amazing canyon views and will look forward to the Pacific Ocean on the way back to the finish line. Aid stations are approximately 1 to 1.5 miles apart and will have water, sports hydration drinks and other healthy snacks.
