There will be days you don’t think you can run a marathon. There will be a lifetime off knowing you have.Anonymous
Long Beach Marathon 2021 is on October 10th, 2021.
Marathon training begins in June.
The program’s long runs are on Saturdays at 7am.
The distances increase incrementally until the full and the half marathon distances with some tapering runs in between. The runs are based on the marathon course (as safely as it can be followed).
Please make sure to bring your own water and energy packs, especially as the days get hotter and the runs longer.
