The jetBlue Long Beach Marathon is returning for its 35th running on Sunday, October 13, 2019! This page provides information about road closures, access routes and event activities to help the local community and visitors plan ahead for their weekend in Long Beach. Information regarding road closures and community access is now available.

An exciting weekend of events will kick off on Friday, October 11, when the doors open to the FREE Health and Fitness Expo, held at the beautiful Long Beach Convention Center. Residents and visitors are encouraged to attend and learn about the latest and greatest products in the world of health and fitness!

A full weekend of running will feature the Aquarium of the Pacific 5k and 1 Mile Kids Fun Run on Saturday, October 12 and the marathon, half marathon, and Bike Tour on Sunday, October 13! Visit our schedule of events page for more details!



Most road closures and detours will be in place between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 13 to accommodate the marathon, half marathon and bike tour. Roads near the start and finish line on Shoreline Drive will close earlier to allow crews to prepare the venue buildout.

The race operates as an out-and-back course and streets will be re-opened on a rolling basis. As the last participants pass an area and all course support materials are removed, roads are opened to traffic at the discretion of local law enforcement. Law enforcement will be positioned at major intersections to allow cars to cross the marathon course only during safe breaks between participants. For the safety of all involved, please adhere to posted traffic signs, equipment and directions from law enforcement and course officials. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Timing of road closures are approximate and subject to change. For a full list of road closures, please click here.


Residents, businesses and visitors to the area are urged to plan ahead. Allow extra time for travel due to road closures and traffic delays. The map below outlines the race course for Sunday, October 13. Click on the icons to learn more about which roads are closed and access information for specific communities near the race course.


Streets along the race course will be marked with No Parking signs. Unfortunately, vehicles in violation of these posted signs will be ticketed and towed at the owners’ expense. Please make sure you are not parked in a temporary no-parking zone.
