If you’re coming to San Diego this March, the first thing you need to do is book a room in a cheap downtown San Diego hotel. The next thing to cross off your list is finding out about the best events taking place while you’ll be in town. These 4 events might be just what you’re looking for.
1. San Diego Half Marathon
On March 12th, hit the ground running at the San Diego Half Marathon & 5K, a nonprofit event that benefits local community service projects and charity partners. All of the proceeds go to the causes, and winners of the races receive extra-large “San Diego Mammoth Challenge” spinner medals. The 13.1-mile USATF-certified course begins at Petco Park before ending at 5th Avenue where runners can celebrate at the Gaslamp Block Party.
Dress up in green attire and head to an Irish wonderland in the downtown area where you can attend the 23rd Annual shamROCK on March 17th. The party will feature 80,000 square feet of green AstroTurf and performances by Irish rock and Celtic bands. Over 20,000 people are expected to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the event, and they can order drinks at the 50-foot Irish pub before hitting the dancefloor. DJs from San Diego and Los Angeles will also be present to spin and get the party started in the Gaslamp Quarter. All proceeds from VIP sales will benefit the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation.
