The OC Marathon Running Festival is May 5-7, 2023 and features a full marathon, half marathon, 5k and kids race. I ran the OC Half Marathon a few years back and it is such a beautiful course. You get some ocean views and SoCal weather. The Souther California crowds are also so great and motivating.
The races have generous time limits with the half marathon course time limit being 3.5 hours and the full marathon is a 7 hour time limit. This means that if you train properly they are walker friendly and are also perfect for newer runners looking for a race. You can crush your goal.
Runners start at Newport Center and run down to Corona Del Mar. There is a beautiful view of Newport Harbor along the run. The course offers up some hills along the way. Running in Orange County, CA is a treat.
I’m thrilled to be working with OC Marathon this year and will be running the half marathon on May 7, 2023. This means I have a DISCOUNT CODE I get to share with you! Use code EMELIA10 for 10% off your registration.
The 5k is in the evening on Saturday, May 6 and the half marathon and marathon are on Sunday, May 7, 2023.
