Legacy Runners
What is the Longboard Legacy Club?

The Longboard Legacy Club recognizes participants who demonstrate their commitment to lifelong activity by completing a full or half marathon in at least three consecutive Surf City events! Qualified club members continue to earn cool rewards and receive special recognition for every year their personal streak is kept alive!

Note: The 5K or 1-Mile distances do NOT apply towards the Longboard Legacy program, Beach Cities Challenge, or Double Dog Dare. You MUST enroll in the half or the full marathon to maintain your challenge status.
