More than a race, Carlsbad is an unforgettable experience.

Carlsbad is a winter marathon and half marathon unlike any other. From our ideal weather conditions to our spectacular coastal course, our award winning event will wow you. Our 26 fully staffed course support stations, continuous entertainment and unsurpassed volunteer support are just a few of our outstanding features. We also offer each participant a gender specific long-sleeve technical fabric shirt, virtual goody bag, spectacular finisher's medal, post-race mylar blanket, refreshments (including chocolate milk!) and much more. Our boutique style event with an emphasis on quality and individual service sets us apart from the mega marathons. Register early to save money and your spot - our races will sell out!

26.2 - Full Marathon

The full marathon starts and finishes at The Shoppes at Carlsbad. After the starter's gun goes off, marathoners will head for the coast passing the Buena Vista Lagoon and out to Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101) north to the north Carlsbad city limit, then south on Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101), east on Palomar Airport Road for a 3-mile trip inland, then out to the coast and south on Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101) to a U-turn at La Costa Avenue, then 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.

13.1- Half Marathon

The half marathon course is one of the fastest in the San Diego area and the U.S. It starts and finishes at the same location as the marathon; however, the races have different start times and the courses are not the same. After the starter's gun goes off, half marathoners will pass the Buena Vista Lagoon as they head out to Carlsbad Boulevard (Highway 101) and along the ocean to the turnaround point at Breakwater Road and 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. are run here.

Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND

Though created for kids ages 12 and under, everyone is welcome to participate. Moms, dads, and big kids are invited to join the fun in this non-competitive 1-mile run/walk through LEGOLAND® California. The Kids Marathon Mile will start just outside of the LEGOLAND® main entrance along the Tyke Hike. The course will continue into LEGOLAND® making a loop of the park, exiting and finishing outside the park along the Tyke Hike. All of the pre and post race activities will take place in the lower parking lot of LEGOLAND®.
