13 Warriors Seek Their Fitness Dreams

carlsbad half marathon

The Carlsbad Marathon & Half takes place every January with a weekend full of events for all ages and abilities. 

Each year, we partner with the Tri-City Medical Center and are proud and honored to give thirteen (13) deserving North County residents an opportunity to achieve their fitness dreams by offering them a spot in our In Motion Fit training program along with a golden ticket to the half marathon.

Consideration goes to those who have overcome a significant health challenge and have never trained for or completed a half marathon.  If there’s one word to describe this group of 13 people, it would be INSPIRING, to say the least!
