Surf City Marathon 2018

I plan on being at the Surf City Marathon 2018 February 04, if the weather is reasonably nice ;-} Somewhere on the Bolsa Chica State Beach, probably near Sea Legs Restaurant between miles 20 and 21. Download course map


If you are not running, feel free to come join me at the canopy to help out. I’ll have water and fruit and other treats for runners (mostly barefoot runners – but if we see a runner about to collapse, we’ll try to help out). This is not an official aid station, so you do not need to register with the marathon to volunteer here – just show up at the canopy and take your shoes off and, don’t relax too much, help the runners with water, etc..

I should be there around:

7:00 AM – 12 Noon (or later if enough slow marathons still going by)


I will as usual, take photos of barefoot and interesting runners. Shortly after the event, you will be able to download those photos here for FREE!
