The San Luis Obispo half marathon is happening this weekend.

Thousands of athletes from all over the world will participate in the Central Coast’s largest running festival.

Friday is the YogaMusic Fest. To limber up for the races there will be sweaty strength yoga, a dance party yoga and vinyasa yoga.

Saturday is Family Day with a 5K, two kids races and the opening of the two-day Race SLO Festival, which will feature free activities and live music.

Sunday is race day with the half marathon and relay races. The 13.1-mile half-marathon starts at 7 a.m. and trails throughout San Luis Obispo.

The race will start and end at the Madonna Inn. The top male and female in the half marathon will receive a unique engraved antique cow bell.

Select streets will be closed Sunday from 3 a.m. to noon and drivers are asked to allow extra time if they are traveling throughout town as minor delays are expected.

Race SLO was started in 2008 and is open to all ages and levels.
