  • there is an option to sign up for surfcity half and long beach half for $175, which is actually a better cheaper deal at the moment if you are planning on doing both.

I don’t have any discount code for this one, but if I find any i will sure to update this.

Why I like this race: Mostly because its part of Beach Cities Challenge. I don’t like their late start time, and the course is little crowded but its just another race to check off here in OC! I signed up to do the Marathon here, and even tho the course is not that scenic, its a flat course.
