The La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K is one of America's most picturesque and beautiful point-to-point races.
Traversing along the San Diego River from Ocean Beach to Sea World, this bike route includes two paths plus connections to the Mission Bay Bike Route. Along the way view estuary habitats, one of San Diego's dog beaches, places to eat and the Ocean Beach pier.
About six miles from Downtown, Ocean Beach offers the quintessential laid-back beach vibe that everyone’s looking for when visiting San Diego. Bring a beach towel, a book to read and an appetite for burgers and tacos when you plan for your ride in OB. If you bring your dog along, head over to Dog Beach where they can run leash-less and free in the sand and water.
Adjacent to Dog Beach and just a few blocks from the restaurants, shops and bars on Newport Avenue is the mouth of the San Diego River. Preserved estuaries and the Ocean Beach Bike Path lines the south side of the river bank. Paired up with the Old Sea World Drive bike path on the north side of the river, a ride can last more than 11 miles.
If it’s too much of a hassle to bring your own bike to San Diego, there are myriad rental shops in and around Ocean Beach. Search for "bike rentals" on this site or on the route map provided to find your preference.
