About

The Epic Run Series

We are Susan & Bob Briggs, the founders of the San Diego Half Marathon 501(c)3 non-profit. We incorporated a mission to not just produce premier running events, but also catalyze volunteering, benefit charities & businesses in each local community, and promote youth wellness.

In 2021, we are introducing the Epic RunTM series and adding it to the inspirational family of events and charities that are all encompassed under the San Diego Half Marathon 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

San Diego Half Marathon

The San Diego Half Marathon is our annual in person run with over 5 miles of waterfront, 4 historic communities, 3 beautiful parks, 2 miles through downtown San Diego, and 1 Epic finish at the Gaslamp Quarter. Also includes a relay, 10k, and 5K options.

Million Mile Charities

Million Mile Charities is the charitable organization of the San Diego Half Marathon 501(c)3 non-profit Corporation. The mission is focused on youth fitness & wellness, as well as enabling fundraising for nonprofits through running events.
