Athletes and supporters may be arriving as early as Thursday, April 28th for scheduled events prior to race day! The 26.2 mile course starts at SLO High School and loops around beautiful Downtown, passing the Fremont Theater, City Courthouse and Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa before heading into the hills, vineyards and farmland of the Edna Valley and finishes at the iconic Madonna Inn.
The scheduled route means street closures through the Downtown area. Streets will be closed to all vehicles, with the exception of marathon staff and emergency vehicles. In the Downtown area, “No Parking” signs will be posted and cars will be towed if left on the streets at closure time.

- Downtown Business Spotlight – Baltodano & Baltodano LLP
Baltodano & Baltodano LLP is celebrating their five-year anniversary here in San Luis Obispo after relocating to bigger office space in Downtown last May.

The firm represents employees in cases involving discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, and unpaid wages. Cases are taken on a contingency basis, which ensures access to legal representation regardless of ability to pay. “We are extremely invested in our clients’ well-being,” Hernaldo says. “It’s important to recognize injustice when you see it, and to stand for those whose voices may otherwise go unheard.” Read More
