JetBlue Long Beach Marathon weekend is finally here. Long Beach Marathon Weekend Expo is taking place today until 6pm at Long Beach Convention Center. There are several reasons to check out the expo, even if you aren’t doing the race this weekend! I got you covered with the reasons!
If you are running this weekend, or want to run Long Beach
- There are still spots available, for both Half Marathon and Marathon, and you can register at the Expo. $120 for Half Marathon and $140 for full marathon.
- Pike Outlet Parking tomorrow is only for prepaid customers. They are selling the parking tickets at the Expo, and this is your last chance, if you want to save some time on parking. $10 for self parking and $15 for valet, and the purchase of parking assures you a spot.(Tip: Try to get there by 5:30 if you want to avoid traffic. Take 405/710 exit at Pacific Coast Hwy exit to avoid street closures)
- Unless you paid for race day pickup, Expo is the only option to pick up your race BIB!
