2008 Surf City Marathon and Half, Huntington, California

Start off Super Bowl Sunday with a marathon along the beautiful California shoreline... the 2008 Surf City Marathon and Half Marathon take place Sunday, Feb. 3rd in Huntington, California. Formerly called the Pacific Shoreline Marathon, this race definitely capitalizes on the Surf City/Beach Boys tie-in, with restored "Woody" cars and lifeguard vehicles and surfboards leading the runners from the starting line. With the Beach Boys playing in the background, of course.

The course goes by Huntington Beach and its pier and through Huntington Central Park, and there are bands playing surf music along the course. Sounds like fun, and apparently a lot of people agree: the race is closed after reaching 16,000 entrants, its largest field ever.

Here you'll find a PDF version of the course map of the 2008 Surf City Marathon and Half Marathon.
