The Long Beach International Marathon & Half Marathon has a course like no other marathon in the country. The highest elevation is only 45 feet, and offers magnificent ocean views of the city's coastline and historical landmarks!

The Long Beach International Marathon can be used as a qualifier for any marathon in the country, including the Boston Marathon.

All participants who register will receive a participant t-shirt and goodie-bag. All finishers in the Marathon, Half Marathon and Bike Tour will receive a beautiful commemorative finisher's medal...a new design each year!

All participants (both pre- and late-registration) must attend the Marathon Expo to pick-up their participant t-shirt, goodie-bag, and timing chip.

* Water stations at every Mile (2 through 25)
* Ultima Replenisher is also available every even mile starting at Mile 4
* Gel on course at Miles 9.5 and 20!
* We use the Champion Chip timing system for all of our events (excluding the Bike Tour).
