California Half Marathon – 13.1 miles
Race Start – 7:00am
Please note that this year we will be completely shutting down Airport Rd. from Buena Vista to Estrella. Please make your way to Le Vigne via Buena Vista Rd. to avoid delays. See Directions.
This scenic course winds it way through the northeastern wineries of Paso Robles. The course is completely on paved road the entire time. Currently parts of Airport Rd between miles 1-2 are in poor condition (we are trying to get the city to fix this) but will be closed to traffic. After getting off Airport the roads are in very good condition as they head into the more rural and scenic wine country. There are two good climbs on this half marathon course (~150ft) starting at mile 5 on Hog Canyon ending at mile 6 just past Pleasant Valley Elementary School and again at mile 8-9 as you come back up Airport Rd. After a mile of gentle downhill running you will find a challenging hill at mile 10. After finishing the Airport Rd. hill at mile 10 you will find a flat course through the finish. This is a challenging but beautiful course.
