AFC COVID-19 Update
July 8, 2020 Update ——————————————————-
Due to current increase in COVID-19 cases around our county, state, and country, we will not be pursing an in-person event on August 16, 2020.
The health of our participants is our top priority, so all events will remain virtual and your SWAG will be shipped to you by the end of August.
June 23, 2020 Update ——————————————————-
We hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy.
As we mentioned in our last update, one of our permitting agencies for an integral section of the America’s Finest City Half Marathon has cancelled all event permits through August 31, including ours, making it impossible to run the half marathon course.
While we don’t have any “new” news to deliver, with the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases, and no updates from local and state agencies on when we’ll be able to gather again in numbers greater than 10, we are moving the 5K to a virtual event as well.
We remain hopeful about an in-person event in Balboa Park on Sunday, August 16, and will keep you posted. For now, we need to make plans for our virtual event, and must hear from you by July 1.
Again, thank you for hanging in with us as we navigate these challenging times. We miss you!

May 27, 2020 Update ————————————————————
Running (and hope) is not cancelled!
We know how badly we all need some inspiration and community right now, so we’re looking to America’s Finest City Half Marathon and 5K to keep us motivated!
We don’t yet know what the Fall will look like, but our goal is to continue planning an in-person AFC, or a modified version per government mandates, for as long as possible.
You can count on us to keep you updated as the situation evolves, but in the meantime we want to offer you a registration solution that gives you peace of mind.
Should AFC be unable to take place in person as planned, we will be offering our registered participants a choice of one of the following options:
- Option 1 – switch to a virtual participant of the 2020 AFC Half Marathon or 5K (required option for series participants – see more below*)
- Option 2 – defer your entry to the 2021 AFC Half Marathon or 5K
- Option 3 – transfer your entry to the January 17, 2021, Carlsbad Half Marathon or Surf Sun Run 5K (must pay $20 transfer fee)
After a decade, we’re shaking up the Half Marathon Triple Crown and SoCal 3×5 series for 2021! This means that this year (2020) is the last year we will feature the La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K as our middle race. Keep an eye out for an announcement in the coming months about which race will join the 2021 Half Marathon Triple Crown and SoCal 3×5 series!
It is our hope that you remain healthy and active and that we’re able to see you in person at AFC in August! In the meantime, we want to stay connected with you virtually! We invite you to join our exclusive In Motion Fit Facebook group for motivation, inspiration, and community. Be sure to tag @InMotionEvents and #stayinmotion on Instagram so we can see how you are staying active while social distancing.
