This race was by far the most challenging and most satisfying experience I’ve ever had since I’ve been running. Having done big city to local community events. This race was everything a big city race should be. The people made you feel like you were part of the town. And the race organizers, made you part of history. In all honesty though. This course is amazing and difficult. I don’t wanna give too much away. I did the double half and. there’s is a reason the first half is called Blackberry mountain. The entire race is a run through history and with no time limit. You get a chance to stop and read up or talk to folks about the history. The support for this race is amazing. From the police officers encouraging people from their patrol cars. To the amazing water stations. That go above and beyond to make sure the runners are take care of. I mean who doesn’t like watermelon, oranges, or candy. Better yet ice cold water and Gatorade. Maybe even a freshly grilled hotdog? And to top it off a DQ within a mile of the finish. The weather went from one extreme to the other. Not the race’s fault. But my only con (also my biggest), is that it is an open course. So if your not comfortable with cars whizzing by. This would definitely not be your type of race. But for me I don’t mind and I highly recommend this race. I will definitely be back and bringing my own clan with me.

I say again. I ❤️ LB. I’ve gotten into many debates over the year bout which Course or event is better in the Beach Cities challenge. It’s Long Beach. We may agree to disagree. But 32 years helps my case. I’ve done the bike tour 3x now but never really looked around til now.
The Course Support/SPECTATORS: of LB help my case. We ride at 6a and I kid you not there were people, not volunteers already in their chairs, on the balcony, or lining the streets with their signs waiting to cheer for us. And we are just a bike tour. From ocean to cal state LB they were out there. Kinda mad I missed the popsicles ??
Then there’s the VOLUNTEERS: the college and high and middle school, cheerleaders, track teams, the cottonwood church. I thanked them all.
The course, yes there’s the boring 3.3 mile stretch along the beach. But least this race allows everyone to actually run alongside the beach. Not just the full Marathon runners. I give you mile 2 (the first bridge) a rising sun over the Queen Mary and Carnival Cruise ship (was upset the fire boat wasn’t out this year), mile 5 the Closer view of the Queen and the lighthouse, the beach path (3 mile ocean view), and mile 11 again a nice view of the ocean from up high. Not to mention the parks and lagoons during the full.
And I’m grateful for the proximity of the restaurants. Runners gotta eat.
