Falkiewicz wins La Jolla Half Marathon
The La Jolla Half Marathon, an annual 13-mile run from the Del Mar Fairgrounds to The Cove, which doubles as a fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club, was won on Sunday, April 22, by Andrew Falkiewicz. The 29-year-old Coronado High graduate beat all comers by more than a minute to finish in 1 hour, 17 minutes, 35 seconds.
The women’s champion, Patricia Miessner, an Eastlake High School sophomore, finished in 1:23:43, which would have made her sixth in the men’s field.
The race drew 4,000 entrants.
