Event Info

The half Marathon is breathtaking with mountain views that wind through the town and incredible neighborhoods of Murrieta. Just minutes from Wine country the entire course is run on roads. It is sure to be a PR course with a few hills, some fast downhill and a very fast flat finish. The 5k course is around the Old Town Murrieta Area and will be extremely fast with virtually no elevation gain. These new courses will allow many runners of all skill levels to come run with us at the 2018 Murrieta Avocado half Marathon and 5k.

**We are excited to announce our new Non Profit Partner to the 2018 event, the Free Hugs Project and Restore Civility.
