Racing in PQ

The 2nd Annual San Diego Holiday Half Marathon challenged runners on a 13.1 mile course that kicked off in Rancho Peñasquitos near Carmel Mountain Rd., or known to runners as the section of the course with the “real hill.” Runners followed the course along the 56 bike path in the cool morning air for some time until reaching Torrey Pines State Reserve, where the marathon finished. Participants received plenty of support from fans and volunteers who cheered them on, offered water and oranges, or ran along with them, contributing to a positive race experience for all. Finisher’s medals, swag bags, shirts, and more were given to entrants upon completion. Congratulations to the top overall male and female finishers Maria Castaneda, Jordan Chipangama, Darcy Davidson, Tommi Hytönen, Ariana Hilborn, Eulogio Rodriguez, Marie Schaper, and Justin Turner.
