Want to run one of the most scenic and flat courses in California? Choose to Run Long Beach this year. Starting and finishing in Downtown Long Beach. After running on the Beach Path, you’ll run through Marine Stadium, past Blair Field and then out through the student filled cheer alley at California State University, Long Beach. After a loop around campus, head back towards downtown, and you’ll be greeted by cheering fans, family and the great sounds and energy at the Finish Line Festival. It’s a race that can’t be missed!
Perhaps no other Half-Marathon course in the country can match the scenery of the Long Beach International City Bank Half Marathon. The Half course is flat and fast and runs 100% along the shoreline. Visit the Course Section for detailed information.
Be a part of the excitement of Marathon Weekend. Be one of the more than 20,000 people who converge at the shore for Long Beach's biggest health and fitness event. Join us to run or walk either for fun (and free beer and goodies) or to raise funds for your favorite charity.
