Thousands of runners were taking to the streets on Sunday as they raced from the city to the sea.
The 17th annual City to the Sea Half Marathon started in downtown San Luis Obispo and ended at Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach.
There was also a 5K and Kid's Fun Run for those who didn't want to run 13.1 miles.
Organizers say that more than half of the participants are not from San Luis Obispo County.
All registration proceeds will go to Cuesta College track and cross-country athletes.
Race Director Brian Locher said, "With the race continuing to grow every year, one of the things that we're trying to do is to build better facilities out at Cuesta, so we'd like to put in a long jump and triple jump area out there that's gonna help lay a better foundation for the athletes."
Organizers say it was the largest event in the race's history, as participation was up by 45 percent over last year.
