    My second time running this and it is consistently well produced. I reviewed it from my first time, but will just reiterate this is a great weekend away if you live in LA or SF areas. Nice people, good weather, course is not tough, but has some rolling hills mid-race. It is a point to point, so best to have someone at the end to either take you back or hang with. They do have shuttles back to your car, but not as much fun as making it the end of your weekend and then heading home, with lots of food stops on the way!

    This race runs from SLO to Pismo, and once you are out of the town portion of SLO, the course is fairly rural. I’ve run in a couple times and both times finished with a respectable time, which surprised me as I was (at that time) struggling with rolling hills. I’ve come to embrace rollies, and use them to my advantage. The last mile is a little tough with constant small ups and downs, but the view of the ocean is a good way to distract yourself and push the pace. Well organized and the finish area is fun. They do shuttle you back to SLO if you do not have someone waiting for you at Pismo.

    This is my 3rd year running this race. Here is where I ran my 1st ever half and this year I came for my 32nd. Race starts right on time like always. No delays. 13.15 for the distance. 451 ft of gain and 611 ft loss. First 5 miles are slightly downhill with hillier miles being mile 6 and 10. Great volunteers, plenty aid stations. Park at finish and take bus to start or park at start and then take bus back to start once you finish your race. Race day packet pickup available. 2 free beers included, nice medal and shirt.

    This was my second time running the half marathon, City to the Sea. I trained outside and on hills and felt much more prepared. My goal was to run the entire way, and I did it! The scenery was beautiful. The race volunteers were very encouraging. The burritos after the race were a perfect after race meal.

    Beautiful run from downtown San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach. The course winds thru the vineyards and then the final miles are long the coast ending in a large park in Pismo Beach. Only complaint – Race packet pick-up was a little slow at the Running Warehouse – had to stand in line in the hot sun.
