The State of California has moved Beyond the Blueprint and fully reopened the economy, so we are moving full speed ahead on an in-person Carslabd Marathon weekend of events. Virtual options are still available, and we will continue to monitor all information coming from state and national agencies. Register now and join us as we return to the road!

Should Carlsbad be unable to take place in person as planned, we will be offering our registered participants a choice of switching to a virtual participant or deferring to the following year.
