SAN DIEGO SAFARI PARK HALF MARATHON
This race is dear to my heart because in 2012 it was my very first ever Half Marathon race. It’s the race that got me hooked! This run is so fun and low-key. Pick up bib, t-shirt, and timing chip, morning of race just steps from start line. Easy parking situation located at the Westfield North County Mall, Escondido. Bathrooms near start line.
The course goes past a couple vineyards, through a nice neighborhood, and ends in The San Diego Safari Park. They sell a post race breakfast and they even have a bar. Runners can come back anytime race day and show their bib to gain entry into the park for a full day of Wild Animal sight seeing. This Wild Animal Park has always been a family favorite of ours.
The medals are great too!
