Review of Surf City Marathon & Half Marathon by Rob Peterson

Posted by: on December, 21 2011

Half Marathon. Great race…ton of runners! If you’re looking for a course to break your PR this may be the one. Of course that depends on the weather. Every once in awhile you get a year with rain, wind, and cold. But usually it’s a perfectly sunny SoCal day. It is also nice to have it on SuperBowl Sunday. Gives you something to look forward to after the run and you won’t feel guilty about snacking or having a few beers. Like the race and medals you get for finishing.
