Review of Surf City Marathon & Half Marathon by Michelle Torres

Posted by: on February, 4 2013

There was a lot of waiting time for the race to start. This happens every year but it’s frustrating. I think the course needs to be changed up a bit. Running majority on PCH is a bit of a killer-beautiful but feels like it’s never ending.
Overall it seemed like there was a lot more people than in previous years. Seems like you had to wait in long lines to do anything. Previous years it wasn’t like that. The amount of people is what frustrated me and made it not so fun.
