Start off 2015 with the first ultra of the year in Southern California! What could be better than running by the Pacific Ocean on a sunny January day? The course follows the Long Beach bike/pedestrian path with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, The Queen Mary, and downtown Long Beach. It is an 8 mile course, with one main aid station in the middle at Marina Park located at One Junipero Avenue. The parking is at the start/finish for easy crew access and runners will have a large staging area for their gear. For a detailed course description see the web page. This course is great for first-timers and is challenging enough for ultra veterans. Custom belt buckles to all 100 milers and a unique beach themed medal for all other distances.
