    Runners Take Over San Diego Streets

    Over 6,000 runners raced through the streets of San Diego Sunday morning.

    The San Diego Half Marathon led runners from the bridge adjacent west of Petco Park down through the San Diego waterfront and back to Petco Park after a hearty 13.1 miles.

    The race began just after 7 a.m. Sunday morning and wrapped up around 10 a.m.

    The marathon is hosted by Do Something San Diego, a nonprofit that supports volunteer work throughout the city.

    Among the big names running the half marathon on Sunday include 2004 silver medalist Meb Keflezighi, and local pastor Miles PcPherson.

    Those commuting through San Diego experienced traffic delays throughout the morning, including travelers heading to and from the San Diego International Airport.
