CARPOOLING IS KEY
Do you have friends who will be running in the Surf City 10 events? The easiest way to be able to save on stress and minimize traffic is by carpooling! Find runners in your area by connecting on our social media channels! The best way to carpool is to meet outside of Huntington Beach, then park at a shuttle location and shuttle to the Start Line.

“The weather was great for this race in addition to the ocean view! I loved the staggered starting times which enabled most everyone to finish around the same time. The shirts were really nice and the medal was cute AND useful!” @littlebvt from Moreno Valley, CA
:The race is out and back along PCH. There is so much to see from the Bolsa Chica Wetlands on the way out to waves crashing on the beach on the way back. I enjoyed the bands playing “Beach Themed” songs. And then there is the medal. I ran this race specifically to earn the Surf Board Bottle Opener Medal” @padgtnbear from Fullerton, CA
