  • This route will bring those staying east of I-5 over to UCSD's hilly campus, it's trails and 400-meter track. Our mileage starts/finshes at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine, but those staying nearby can pick up the route anywhere along the way.

    Note: Remain on sidewalks where available.

  • A scenic jaunt that starts downtown and runs through San Diego's largest park. Out and back accrues 5 miles total.

    * In the Gaslamp Quarter (downtown) our distance begins at 6th Ave. and Broadway

    * Run north on 6th Ave. and experience a long gradual climb (~ 1 mile)

    * Turn R at Laurel St. and follow it through the park's main entrance/drive

    * After passing the second of two large fountains, look for a pedestrian bridge that crosses over Park Blvd.

    * Cross the bridge, then head north along Park Blvd. (you'll have to run in the grass)

  • This quarter-mile, foam-surfaced track was recently completed. Just north of the pool, you will find that the fence surrounding the track is typically unlocked along the southeast side. The available hours seem sporadic, especially during the school year, so we cannot guarantee access. If you run to it and can't get in, take it in stride and modify your workout into a hill repeat, run to Nautilus Street and turn left (east), there you will find a MONSTER of a climb!

  • One of the most scenic runs on the west coast Midwest runners will feel at home with the flat as a pancake course:

    * Our route Start/Finish is the U.S.S. Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, most downtown hotels are within a mile of this point

    * Follow the concrete path/sidewalk that runs north along the bay

    * After mile 2, turn left on Harbor Island Drive and veer R as the road comes to a "T"

    * Continue west till the road ends, then turn around and run east on the sidewalk along the water till it ends on the opposite side

  • An educational breeding ground for tomorrow's scientists and engineers, UCSD is also an athletic playground for local residents and out-of-town visitors. Professional triathletes and Olympic track and fielders train on this 1/4 -mile oval. Circular running is free, but you may be trumped by the UCSD Track Team. However, if just the Field Team is working out in the middle, the coaches are pretty releaxed about having runners on the track.

  • A 9-mile (one way) flat and paved path that runs along Coronado's Silver Strand. A couple bathroom and water fountain stops along the way and some of the miles are painted on the path. Pick it up anywhere along the Strand. Popular start spots are at the Coronado Community Center (see our listing) or across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado.
