The Third Annual San Luis Obispo Marathon, Half Marathon + 5K weekend takes place April 25-27, 2014. The marathon and half marathon runs Sunday, April 27 through our small, classic California town, through historic bungalow neighborhoods, past a Frank Lloyd Wright building, the Chinese Garden and out into the hills of the Edna Valley with it's miles of vista views, vineyards, farmland and wineries. The course ends at the iconic Madonna Inn where the SLO Life Party begins!
The San Luis Obispo Marathon + Half Marathon is a point-to-point course with a 750 ft. elevation gain. There are a few challenging hills, but it is what makes the Morro Vistas so beautiful and the accomplishment that much sweeter. The 5K and Children’s Fun Run is Saturday, April 26 on the Madonna Inn property.
At the finish, runners can enjoy the Jamba Juice recovery tent, get some ice and therapy from San Luis Sports Therapy and fill up on carbs from our local wineries, 805 microbrew, as well as fresh prepared foods from popular local restaurants and food trucks. Stay and enjoy the sunshine, the 805 lounge and shop for that souvenir gear.
