This year's parcours, almost a replica of last year's race, is 228.7 kilometres and will include three sprints in Irun, Oiartzun and Irun. A race for the climbers, the route will also include eight climbs: two category 1 climbs, two of category 2 climbs, and four category 3 climbs.

At the 2017 Clasica San Sebastian, Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) sprinted to victory, proving quickest to the line out of a select group of late escapees in the hilly one-day race. Tony Gallopin (then riding for Lotto Soudal) was second across the line for runner-up honours, with 2016 winner Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) rounding out the podium in third.
