Want to see San Luis Obispo on foot? Fair warning: This is no leisurely docent-led stroll.
The San Luis Obispo Marathon + Half is back for its second running April 6 and 7.
The weekend will kick off Saturday morning with a 5K race, featuring two loops around the Madonna Inn property followed by a downhill finish. A kids' fun run also will take place that morning at the inn.
On Sunday the marathon and half marathon will take runners through downtown San Luis Obispo, past the Fremont Theatre, Mission San Luis Obispo and neighborhoods filled with Victorian and Craftsman homes.
The fleet of foot then head on closed roads into the hills, farm lands and vineyards of the Edna Valley, U turn back to the center of town, and then race onto the Madonna Inn property for the downhill finish.
