It's finally that time of the year! The much-loved San Diego Half Marathon is this Sunday! We here at the Pacific Terrace Hotel have got our running shoes on and we're ready to go! If you're going to be in town for the race, whether you're a participant or spectator, we've got you covered and plenty of rooms are still available! Come and see why so many folks love the Pacific Terrace, and if you're trying to win this race, we think it's pretty safe to say that we're your best bet, as we provide the ultimate relaxation experience so you can center in and focus your energy on yourself over the weekend as the race approaches.
The 13.1-mile race begins Sunday morning at Petco Park, just 20 minutes from the hotel, and takes runners through the heart of San Diego, showcasing its incredible skyline and amazing harbor front views of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
This special marathon is nonprofit, and 100% of the proceeds go directly to charities and organizations that work to help fix, build, and nourish various local community projects around us here in San Diego.
If you're going to be watching this race from the sidelines, we have the tip on some of the best spots to be. Line up along Harbor Drive to catch the start of the race when the gun goes off. For an incredible view of the bay while the runners go by, move down to the west side of North Harbor Drive. And of course, you'll want to be there when the big finish goes down - nab a spot on 6th Avenue, north of E Street!
Whether you spent the day competing or watching, come and kick back with us after a long day!
