Read on for maps, street closures, and more.
This event, held every year on the first Sunday of May, can be fun for speed lovers. Both full marathons and half marathons this weekend are “net downhill” (there are hills), but runners will finish more than 100 feet lower than they started. It is one of the three marathons that make up the “Beach Cities Challenge”, which also includes the Long Beach and Surf City marathons. You can learn more about specific local closures, such as brochures for specific neighborhoods and suggestions for alternative routes in the O, C.
There is also a 5 km race on Saturday night, and a half-marathon version of the race will be held on Sunday morning. You can find more information about the 5 km race here and about the half marathon here. The 19th annual Orange County Marathon kicked off on Sunday and tens of thousands of runners are expected to attend this year's event. Adults, children and even dogs supported their friends and family in the race, which starts on Fashion Island and ends at the Orange County Fairgrounds.
