Upon completion of the 3rd race in the series, runners will automatically qualify to receive a special Beach Cities medal to recognize their achievement. This can be picked up in the finish area of each event. If you have already completed your challenge in Long Beach, Surf City, or OC Marathon, get it started again. New Beach Cities Challenge medals will be released annually.
If Surf City is your 3rd race in the challenge, be sure that your Beach Cities Qualifier status is verified when you visit us at the expo. You will use your bib as your ticket to pick up your fabulous medal at the Finish Line Festival.
There is no additional cost to register for and participate in the series. Simply register for each event as usual and your qualification will be automatic after your 3rd race. Be sure to register early using the same name and birth date for each race. Once a race has sold out, you will NOT be able to register. You must receive a finish time for each event qualify.
