Monterey Bay Half Marathon

The Monterey Bay Half Marathon is an out-and-back course beginning in historic downtown Monterey, running along Steinbeck’s Cannery Row, and next to the beautiful Pacific Grove shoreline. The course features scenic views of waves crashing on rocky beaches, beautiful Victorian-era homes, and frequent sightings of aquatic life (whales, dolphins, sea otters, pelicans and more). Celebrate your finish with family and friends at downtown Monterey’s Custom House Plaza at our post-race Finish Village, where you can visit the Treadmill Recovery Center, enjoy a free beer at the Lagunitas Brewing tent and watch the Awards Ceremony.
