About The Cupid Dash Half Marathon
The Cupid Dash Half Marathon in Santa Monica, California is an event for runners of all levels. The race takes place on February 12th, 2023 and is a great way to kick off the new year.
The route starts at the iconic Santa Monica Pier and winds its way along the beachfront of the city. Runners will experience some beautiful views as they make their way up Ocean Avenue and continue through Pacific Palisades Park before turning around to head back down to finish at the pier. Along this route, runners can expect plenty of scenic views that include beaches, parks and even some residential areas with beautiful homes lining the streets.
In terms of weather conditions during this time of year, it’s typically very mild in Santa Monica with temperatures ranging from 55-75 degrees Fahrenheit throughout February. This makes it ideal running conditions for both experienced marathoners and newcomers alike. Crowds tend to be larger than usual since this half marathon falls near Valentine’s Day so you can expect lots of cheering spectators on either side throughout your run!
One unique aspect about this particular race is that participants get special prizes if they complete it in under two hours – a nice incentive for those who are trying to push themselves further or train for future events! Additionally, there are several aid stations placed along the course where runners can grab water or sports drinks when needed – another great feature that makes running long distances more manageable!
Overall, I highly recommend signing up for Cupid Dash Half Marathon if you’re looking for a challenging yet rewarding event filled with stunning scenery and tons of support from fellow competitors and onlookers alike!
