Review of San Diego Half Marathon by

Posted by: on March, 11 2013

I just finished up the 2013 race, and had a great time! The whole event was very well organized and planned out. The course is very nice, though I’m not a personal fan of the 9th mile hill, it does add a nice challenge.

The expo was a bit on the small side, but had a good selection of vendors. It wasn’t immediately obvious to me that packet pick-up was in the back of the expo, but figured it out pretty quick.

Post race was excellent, great selection of foods, you had to walk up some stairs to get to it… but I was ok with it, since I like to keep moving for a while after the race. They also have a very nice station to look up your race results up there as well.

All in all, it was a great race, I like the downhill to the finish and great organization. Can’t beat the locale!
