This will be my 2nd OC marathon. OC marathon is a member of the Beach Cities Challenge.

The Beach Cities Challenge is a race series that includes three Southern California marathons – the Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach, the Orange County Marathon, and the Long Beach International City Bank Marathon. Runners who complete any combination of half or full marathons in all three events consecutively will receive a special Beach Cities Challenge Medal but no lightweight jacket.

Inspired and motivated by my Pacer, ran my 3rd fastest (2:06:32) Half Marathon

Fun! Fun! Fun!


  1. Thanks for the info Arthur.

    Will you be running Palos Verdes or Pasadena? I may be in the area and would like to join either.


  2. I will be out of town from 5/15 to 5/27. The Palos Verde Event is scenic ,challenging and not crowded. The next event that I might do is the San Diego Rock n Roll on June 5.
    Good luck in Borneo.
