Are you ready to run in the 25th Annual Long Beach Marathon this Sunday?
Only 6 days to go. Over 18,000 runners will be making their last preparations this week for the big marathon that runs through the streets on Long Beach. We hope all of the runners are spending their time carbing up with the right carbohydrates to make it through this 26.2 mile run around Long Beach!!!! Over 2,000 volunteers will be along the course route to assist the runners with their race.
The starting point is down at Shoreline Village. The runners will be heading down the walking path on Long Beach to Ocean Drive in Belmont Shore and up to the Colorado Lagoon and unto Cal State Long Beach and back to Shoreline Village.
- If you live in Belmont Shore, park in Belmont Heights if you have to go some where on Sunday morning like church. All streets along the course will be closed at 5 am on Sunday.
Before Sunday, you can check out and attend the Health and Fitness Expo from 12 pm to 7 pm on Friday and 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday at the Long Beach Convention Center. Admission is free at the Convention Center but parking is $10. For more information about the marathon in Long Beach, visit their Long Beach Marathon Race site.
