Race Start -2


The Kaiser Permanente Thrive Half Marathon and 5K benefiting Make-A-Wish San Diego encourages the community to “Thrive”! We can do this together by staying active, eating healthy, living well and giving back. It’s an opportunity for San Diegans to get fit, have fun, and at the same time help an amazing local charity.

This is the perfect San Diego fall half marathon or fun 5k. We can’t wait to see you at the start line!



Half Marathon (13.1 miles):

This is a point- to-point FAST Course. The first 3 miles of the course is downhill followed by 10 miles of long straight-aways on Friars Road, Old Sea World Drive and Ingraham Street.

5K (3.1 miles):

Start and Finish at Ski Beach and run North on Ingraham St. to Crown Point, along the beach path towards Sail Bay and return to Vacation Isle. The course is very scenic and is the perfect beginners run.

*Course subject to change based on final city approvals


For over 35 years, Make-A-Wish® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish San Diego grants wishes to eligible children in San Diego and Imperial Counties.

The Kaiser Permanente Thrive Half Marathon and 5K has committed to raise $10,000 for Make-A-Wish San Diego, the cost it takes to grant one wish. With your help and generosity, we have the opportunity to exceed the $10,000 commitment and reach a higher goal. Let’s give back to the community and let’s give back to the kids.
