Review of La Jolla Half Marathon by Derek Abbey

Posted by: on February, 8 2012

The course is worth the race. The organizers though have no excuse for everything otherwise though. Support on the course was good. Not sure why San Diego has such trouble with traffic for these smaller races. This one starts at the fair grounds so they should be able to get people in easily. Expo is weak. The shirt is a joke and the medal is OK. They race always sells out so they should be able to produce a better product.

Route is awesome. Tough hill in Torrey Pines. Nice strip on the beach before you get to the hill and ends in La Jolla. If you haven’t run the race, I would recommend it for the course alone, but that’s it.
