    Be courteous, it is crowded, 20000 runners this year. Mostly fast and flat besides one hill after mile 3 and a small grade 2 miles before the finish line MORE

    I wish they would open the Residents portion of the race to include adjoining (i.e., bordering cities). Currently the race includes two main categories: one for locals (Huntington Beach ONLY) and the other to Non-residents. I live on a border city (if I cross the street I’m in Huntington Beach) and consider the beach as my backyard. Just a minor issue. I’ll keep coming back and running with my HB friends in the residents race, just unable to collect my bling if I place in my age category, as I did this year. Thanks.

    The Huntington Beach 4th of July parade has been going on for 111 years. The prelude to the parade are the Surf City Run 5k for residents followed by an open 5k. Both run the parade route down Main Street to the beach and back. very fast course but if you want the time be sure to start up front as it does get crowded. Excellent race management by Spectrum Sports. Starts on time, no problems on course even with 50,000 spectators lining the streets. Stay for the parade–its pure Americana and a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July

    Huntington Beach on the 4th of July–what can be better than starting the day with a 5k down Main Street to the beach and back. The route runs the same route as the 4th of July Parade that follows. Streets are lined the entire length of the course with spectators. fast course and lots of free stuff after. Just an All American Good time!
