Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in the US, especially in California, it will not be possible for us to hold the 2020 Long Beach Marathon in-person this October. We are offering virtual options to those that would like to keep the spirit of Long Beach alive.
Thank you for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
