Runners must complete any combination of full or half marathons in each of the three events in consecutive order, starting with any of the three events.

If a person misses even one event in consecutive order, they will automatically be disqualified, and they must start over.

Beach Cities Medal Pick Up - ON RACE DAY IN THE EXPO
Upon completion of the third race in the series, runners will receive a special Beach Cities medal to recognize their achievement. Your race bib should have a Beach Cities logo on it which you will use to pick up your fabulous medal in the finish area of your third event. If Surf City is your third race in the challenge, be sure that your Beach Cities Qualifier status is verified when you view your registration on the main website confirmation tool twenty four hours after placing your order. You need a correct bib assignment to pick up your medal. Medals will NOT be mailed.
