Surf City Marathon & Half Marathon
This award-winning course is considered one of the best courses in the country and is well known for being scenic and flat.
The race starts along the Pacific Coast Highway and passes by the famous Huntington Beach pier, where runners will enjoy the beauty of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands as they turn. All participants finish down the Pacific Coast Highway and kick it up a notch for the crowds at Main Street on their way to a monumental finish line moment and continue their celebrations at the “Sand Bar” right on the beach!
