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.
Beginner Runner Training Plans
Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!
In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.
None to Run is different from most beginner plans:
- Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
- Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
- Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.
If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.
