There is also a half-marathon over portions of the same course, and a four-person relay option. Since its inception, the marathon claims to have raised in excess of $100 million for charities (but see below). The 2006 marathon had 21,159 participants, 17,339 of whom successfully finished the race.

San Diego is the eighth-largest city in the United States and second-largest city in California. The city is located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, immediately adjacent to the Mexican border. The birthplace of California, San Diego is known for its mild year-round climate, its natural deep-water harbor, and its long association with the U.S. Navy.

Historically home to the Kumeyaay people, San Diego was the first site visited by Europeans on what is now the West Coast of the United States. Upon landing in San Diego Bay in 1542, Juan Cabrillo claimed the entire area for Spain, forming the basis for the settlement of Alta California 200 years later. The Presidio and Mission of San Diego, founded in 1769, were the first European settlement in what is now California. In 1821 San Diego became part of newly independent Mexico, and in 1850 became part of the United States with the admission of California to the union.
