The 2016 USA Half Marathon Has Been Cancelled.

13.1 Miles in America’s Finest City

Competitive Distance Runners Invitational

USA Half Marathon San Diego

Join the nation’s leading distance runners to race through the streets of San Diego!

With so many fun runs, mud runs, and color runs being launched nationwide, we noticed a decline in the production of competitive endurance events in the United States. This race was developed to encourage recreational runners to set new fitness goals and challenges for themselves. The USA Half Marathon is the first “Qualifiers Only” Half Marathon, designed for elite, sub-elite, and competitive runners.
