About the course.
2019 Carlsbad 5000 Course (5K and All Day 20K): The course that started it all in 1986 has once again been approved and certified for 2019. Originally designed with the help of the legendary Steve Scott, the record-setting course starts with a blast down Grand Avenue before opening up to nearly 2 miles of quintessential SoCal Pacific goodness. The miles fly by on this out-and-back coastal section along Carlsbad Boulevard before the final turn onto Carlsbad Village Drive for that oh so sweet downhill finish into the heart of the Village.
