Long Beach Half Marathon 2020

October 4th, 2020

Gyms and recreational facilities have been closed, but the streets have remained open for training, and the Long Beach Half Marathon is waiting for you this October 4th! Now more than ever, your health and well-being matter. At this same time, families in Central America are facing extreme hunger after not having been able to work and earn money during a multi-month lockdown. You can do this! We will support you every step of the way with training plans, training groups, tons of encouragement, and fantastic fundraising rewards. And if Long Beach has not opened up for large events this fall, we will host our own smaller race event in Orange County. No matter the challenges, running is not canceled! Generosity and hope for hungry families in Central America are not canceled!
