The Surf City USA Marathon is a runner's dream. Taking place on the morning of Superbowl Sunday (the first Sunday in February) the oceanfront course takes you through the best of Huntington Beach. From Pacific Coast Highway to Central Park, the mostly flat course is perfect for new marathoners and is even used by some as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
Each year, thousands of runners and their families come to enjoy this annual tradition. In addition to the full marathon, the event includes a half marathon and the largest beach-side health and wellness expo on the West Coast. Registration for the marathon opens in late spring each year. Marathon registrations and hotels do sell out; advance reservations are highly recommended.
