COVID-19 UPDATES TO 2020 CRAFT CLASSIC HALF MARATHON & 5K
San Diego Craft Classic Runners - We wanted to share an update on the current state of the 2020 Craft Classic Half Marathon & 5K.
Our team at San Diego Running Co. has been working closely with the City of San Diego to POSTPONE the 2020 event. We will be moving the date of the race to Sunday, August 30, 2020. We still want to host you for your half marathon or 5K but while doing so in a safe environment. This postponement will give us more time to work with the city to do just that.
We know you have questions regarding the new date so we prepared some answers to those anticipated questions. Please take a few minutes to review those answers here. If you have additional questions for us, please let us know. You can reach us through our contact form at the bottom of this page.

PARKING & SHUTTLES
Participants who plan to enjoy the beer garden are highly encouraged to use a ride share service to get to and from the race! For those who plan to drive, Half Marathoners should arrive EARLY at the finish line area to park and take a shuttle to the start line.
THE SHUTTLES RUN FROM 5:00AM - 6:00AM
There is no official race parking at the Half Marathon start line, so if you choose to park there, it's at your own risk. There are no shuttles returning to the half marathon start line after the race.
Half Marathon and 5K participants can park in the large parking lot at 6450 Sequence Dr., San Diego, CA 92121. Your best route is to take Mira Mesa Blvd. to Genetic Center Dr. and it runs right into the parking lot. Once the lot is full you should look for street parking in the neighborhood, including Genetic Center Dr., Viper Way or Waples St. Note that you will not be able to park directly next to Green Flash or any of the streets to the east of the brewery due to road closures for the race.
If you are being dropped off at the Half Marathon start area, you will have a designated passengers drop-off area located on Torrey Santa Fe Road that can be accessed via the east side of Camino Del Sur.
