San Dieguito Half Marathon to close roads in Rancho Santa Fe on Feb. 8


The 47th annual San Dieguito Half Marathon will affect several Rancho Santa Fe roads on the morning of Sunday, Feb. 8, but fewer roads than in past years. The new course will mainly affect San Elijo and La Granada, but will stay off El Montevideo and Lago Lindo.

“Overall, it’s less impactful to residents,” said RSF Association Acting Manager Ivan Holler.

The race will affect the roads from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on race day. The half marathon begins at San Dieguito Park and roads will be closed from La Orilla to San Elijo — runners turn around before El Montevideo. Participants will double back and head on an out-and- back on La Granada, turning around before Avenida de Acacias and running back to the park.

Residents are encouraged to use alternate routes during that time, on El Camino Del Norte, Paseo Delicias and Linea del Cielo. There will be additional traffic control volunteers at various intersections throughout the route.
