The Tustin Hangar Half marathon had it’s Inaugural Race in March 12, 2017. With a $100k world record price, diamonds for 1st place finishers, and over 1,200 participants; the Hangar Half made it’s mark in the running world. This is the only race that allows runners inside the Historical Tustin Hangar where you can really feel like an ant (178 ft tall, thats 17 stories high!). The participants run from one end of the hangar to the other which is no small feet (1,088 feet long, thats 3 football Fields!). Even when the runners leave the inside of the hangar, they can still observe its massiveness from the outside while running the course.
Both 5K and the half marathon will start at The District at Tustin Legacy, a one million square foot open-air entertainment and shopping center. Runners in both races will proceed through one of the two Tustin blimp hangars, among the largest wooden structures ever built and are rarely opened to the public. These impressive structures are seventeen stories high, over 1,000 feet long and 300 feet wide!

The Half Marathon continues from the District to The Marketplace, another fantastic 670,000 square-foot open-air shopping and entertainment center; and then proceeds to historic Old Town Tustin, with its tree-lined streets and historic buildings dating back to the 1880’s. The Half Marathon then returns to the District for the finish line celebration.
