Registration for the 31st Annual AFC Half Marathon in San Diego has officially closed.

The 5K event, however, is still taking applicants. There are only 10 exclusive registrations offered only to athletes who commit to raise at least $1,000 for the Habitat for Humanity San Diego.

The Half Marathon and 5K take place on Sunday, Aug. 17 in America's Finest City. The Half Marathon starts at historic Cabrillo National Monument, with its majestic view of both San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, follows scenic San Diego Bay and Harbor Island along the Embarcadero to The Star of India, winds through downtown San Diego, and ends in Balboa Park. The race starts at 7 a.m. The 5K Run/Walk will kick off at 6:45 a.m.

All participants will receive a special technical fabric t-shirt. There is a two-day AFC Fitness Expo at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, 1380 Harbor Island Drive (Fri, Aug. 15 - noon to 7 p.m. & Sat, Aug. 16 -10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). T-shirts are available for pickup after the race in Balboa Park.
