Half Marathon Triple Crown

Triple Crown

For the 8th consecutive year, a trio of scenic Southern California half marathons have formed an alliance to create a Half Marathon Triple Crown award to honor participants who finish all three half marathons in the same calendar year.

The 13.1-mile threesome includes the Carlsbad Half Marathon, the La Jolla Half Marathon and the America's Finest City Half Marathon. Finishers of the 2013 Half Marathon Triple Crown will receive a commemorative medal at the AFC post-race festival and be recognized on race web sites as winners of the "Half Marathon Triple Crown - 39.3 Miles of Paradise."

Runners attempting the Triple Crown must enter the AFC before registration is closed.
