Join Mermaid Half Marathon San Diego
Mermaid returns to San Diego’s Mission Bay for a scenic women’s 5k, 10k, and half marathon. The flat and fast course features beautiful Bay views on mostly closed roads. The Mermaid is ideal for both runners and walkers. Come out and experience the joy of crossing the finish line!
Men can register and participate. However, since Mermaid is primarily a women’s event (about 97-98% of participants are women), men are not eligible for awards.
Runners start the race on the western edge of the park near the Mission Bay boat launch and South Shores Park, and from there follow Mission Bay Parkway, Sea World Drive and Fiesta Island Road over onto Fiesta Island, a recreational island with mostly parks and beaches that overlooks the saltwater lagoon of Fiesta Bay and the Enchanted Cove.
After making the clockwise loop around Fiesta Island, runners head back across the bridge at Fiesta Island Road to East Mission Bay Drive, which they’ll take north through a series of parks along the bay’s shoreline, Tecolote Shores North Park, Playa Pacifica Park, Mission Bay Park and De Anza Cove Park. Once they make it to the bridge over Ross Inlet, they’ll then continue on as the road becomes Crown Point Drive to the first turnaround point.
Once they make the turn and head back in the opposite direction along Crown Point Drive and across Ross Ilnet, runners head back into De Anza Cove Park, for a long stretch south along the shoreline of Mission Bay to the finish line in Tecolote Shores North Park. Instead of the roadways, they’ll stick close the shoreline along the running and walking paths through Mission Bay Park and Playa Pacifica Park.
The finish line lies in Tecolote Shores North Park, just before runners reach the end of the land.

We do not have a time limit. We want to see all Mermaids cross the finish line.
