Race Reports for Long Beach Marathon


Review: The Long Beach Half Marathon - Oct 14, 2014

As I said earlier, I’ve run the Long Beach Half Marathon four times now. I like this race; I really do like it. But I don’t love it. It’s a solid and fairly well-organized affair, but it does have a few shortcomings and lacks the extra touches that could elevate it to the next level. The race is reasonably priced, local and part of the Beach City Challenge (a series I like). I’ll continue to run it each year when it fits my schedule, but I wouldn’t be overly heartbroken if I missed it from time to time.
