OC Marathon and Half Marathon
The OC Marathon promotes an active and healthy lifestyle and seeks to inspire kids to fitness. The 5k happens on Saturday with the half and full marathon events running on Sunday. Both Sunday races start in Newport Beach and finish in Costa Mesa, followed by the Ultimate Finish Line Festival. There are a few hills along the way, but both courses are net downhill. The event encourages community and business involvement to positively affect the lives of our runners and families while supporting charities.
