The race begins at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, then cruises along the coast towards the summit of Torrey Pines State Park. After the hill, the course rolls across the mesa and down into the residential district of La Jolla, finally finishing at Ellen Browning Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove. At the finish line, you’ll find a victory festival with live music and refreshments.
