Surf City Marathon: RESORT Stays

Sleep and compete in Huntington Beach

The award-winning Surf City Marathon is a chance to run along uninterrupted, sandy Southern California beaches for a marathon or half-marathon distance. The race follows the coastline and weaves briefly through the streets of Surf City, USA. About 2,500 runners enjoy a flat course at sea level and a chance to qualify officially for the Boston Marathon.

The Surf City Marathon always occurs on Super Bowl weekend, so you can get in an epic race before the football showdown begins. Stay at Kimpton Shorebreak Huntington Beach Resort, where amenities like in-room yoga mats and a modern gym are sure to get you in a running state of mind.
