Training for the Surf City Marathon or Half Marathon? Want a taste of the race course? Or maybe you want to run a nice October race with good views and nice race swag. If any of these describe you, then the Surf City 10 race is the perfect race for you. This Racing event even offers a Halloween costume competition event. Perfect for Holiday Racers.
Like the Surf City Marathon, finding parking for this race is easy to find, while the traffic is a bit lighter compared to the marathon event. Packet pickup is available the morning of the race. Easy line formation and helped by very kind volunteers. Bib design is great and the running material shirts are great pieces of race swag at packet pickup. (yes there is a finishers medal.) Like the Marathon there is a superb race environment and feel for the race. Great race announcers and your around positive runners who want to have as much fun as you want to. The race is literally the exact same course that the Marathon runs along. You continue to get the beautiful views of the ocean and waves of Surf City. No matter what race you are running whether its the 5k, 10k, or the 10 miler it is a straight race course with one turnaround. No hills and nothing too challenging. Great views, cool weather, plenty of entertainment, water stops and fun on Highway 1! On the final stretch of the race you can definitely push yourself to claim a new PR. At the finish line you will claim your gorgeous surf board cork opener medal. The medal is truly a one of a kind and a relative to the Surf City Marathon Medal. Be sure to stick around for the Halloween Costume contest after the race and have some fun at the finish line party! If you are looking for practice, need an October race, a chance to PR, or just looking to have some fun with great race swag. This is definitely the perfect race on Highway 1!
