HALF MARATHON

Half Marathon starts at the entrance to the park at Point San Pedro Road. The course begins to the left for an approximate three-mile loop along the water’s edge. After passing the park, the road begins its series of rolling hill descents through the oaks and madrones within China Camp State Park. The course turns right off the road and circles Turtle Back Trail for the one-mile loop before continuing down the road for another half mile or so. Then turn left at Back Ranch Meadows and step onto one of the worlds most special places, the Shoreline Trail. You follow Shoreline Trail for the loop back up all those rollers you already came down earlier on the parallel road (including our very special Hammer Hill at mile 11 or so). After crossing back over the road, you enter the back side of McNear’s Beach along the water for a very memorable, fast finish.

About 7 miles road, the balance trail. Total elevation climbing about 1500’+.

  • 3:30 hour maximum time limit
  • NO strollers on this course, please

9:45 am
10k

10k starts at the entrance to the park at Point San Pedro Road. The course begins to the left for an approximate three-mile loop along the water’s edge. After passing the park, the road begins its series of rolling hill descents through the oaks and madrones within China Camp State Park. The turnaround point is at Weber Point, where you go back up and over Hammer Hill (staying on the road) before entering the back side of McNear’s Beach along the water for a very memorable, fast finish.

All road except for the .4 mile of trail back into the park before the finish stretch. Total elevation climbing about 1200’+.

  • 2:45 hour maximum time limit
  • NO strollers on this course, please

10:00 am
5k

5k starts at the entrance to the park at Point San Pedro Road. This course, all road, turns to the left and follows the water’s edge. The turnaround, just at the little park, brings you back to enter McNear’s Beach Park. Gradually climb the entrance to past the guard gate before the big downhill to the great lawn, the expo, and yes! the finish line.

All road to mostly road, flat path and grass at the park. A little elevation change back into the park.

Kids Fun Run is flat, on path and grass, within the great lawn and expo area at McNear’s Beach. Course starts at approximately 100-200 yards for the youngest and adds loop(s) as they grow.
