Spectator Tips for Race Day

  • Know the projected finish time of your runner to keep track of time
  • Be sure to discuss a post-race reunion plan with your runner before the race. Large alphabetical signs will be posted in the Family Reunion area near the Finish Line to help aid you in reconnecting with your runner
  • Use public transportation, like the San Diego Trolley to watch the race


With local bands playing live on entertainment stages along the route, Rock 'n' Roll San Diego will rock America's Finest City in a city-wide party. The bands will pulsate the course to keep runners and spectators rockin' from start to finish!

After the race, get ready to rock with the free Post-Race Concert, located at the Finish Line Festival and open to the public. The Finish Line Festival stage will be rockin' all day with an Opening Act and then the Post-Race Concert to keep you groovin' after you cross the finish line.
