Virtual Race Information

We know you can’t always join us in person so we offer a virtual race option to enjoy the perks of the race while running on your own.  Virtual races count as qualifying races for the Beach Bum Loyalty Program, the Beach Cities Challenge, and Golden State Challenge!

Included with your virtual registrations:

When you sign up for your Virtual Race option, you will need to complete your virtual race and submit proof of finish through our Virtual Submission Link no later than October 12th to receive your race packet.  Race packets will not be mailed before the race and will not be available at the Race Expo.
