Review of Long Beach International Marathon/Half/5K by Jim Wenzell

Posted by: on February, 8 2012

Overall, pretty good. I had to park about a half mile from the finish line, so I was hurting on the walk to the car after 26.2 miles! It is a good course. I loved that they had video of everyone crossing the finish line. Nice touch! That said, this past year’s race had the ugliest shirts I’ve seen. I don’t even wear mine anymore after hearing so many cracks from friends. I would do it again.
