It truly is an amazing event. Keep in mind that there may be road closures in your area. Please review the list of impacted roads below so you can plan accordingly:

The following roads will be closed during the race from approximately 5 a.m. to 2 p.m.:

While the streets in your area will be either completely or partially closed, the Carlsbad Police Department and traffic control personnel will attempt to meter cars needing to get through, if and only when there is a safe opportunity. Please allow yourself extra time if you have somewhere you have to be on Sunday, January 14 before 2 p.m. If you know you will need to cross impacted streets that day, consider parking your vehicle on a nearby street that will not be affected by the race road closures.

If you are located on the race course, please consider helping us achieve our goal of “only your feet hit the ground.” On Sunday, January 14, place your trash can out to allow runners and walkers an additional opportunity to properly dispose of their trash, so nothing gets left behind on the race course or the streets and beaches of Carlsbad!
