Long Beach Marathon and Half Marathon 2015

Ever wanted to challenge yourself by running a marathon or feel like you need to get in a half marathon first before taking the step towards a full? Well now is the time. A few members of the gym will be running the Long Beach Marathon this year and we would like to have that number grow.

The course is relatively flat with a great ocean view and tour of Downtown Long Beach as you run, making it a great first marathon. We can train as a group for it and as long as you stick with it you’ll be celebrating at the finish line in October.

With 6.2 miles to go, runners head back towards Ocean Boulevard for a fast finish and Finish Line Festival celebration

HALF MARATHON

Combined with spectacular oceanfront views and a variety of settings including metropolitan Downtown Long Beach and the seaside community of Belmont Shore, the 100% flat course makes the Long Beach Half Marathon one of the best.

Starting on Shoreline Drive, the course passes the new Pike at Shoreline Village, crosses the Queensway Bridge and runs to the bow of the Queen Mary, circles back around the Aquarium of the Pacific, the Lighthouse at Rainbow Harbor, then back by Shoreline Village before heading down the beautiful beach path. You’ll close out your race running above the ocean along the bluff before closing out downhill into a cheering final straight of fans.

The Half Marathon start time is 7:30am.
The course time limit for the Marathon & Half Marathon events is 7.5 hours (starting from 6:00am). The course will begin closing down at 1:30pm.
