The SOCAL River Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K and 5K is located on the Santa Ana River Trail in southern California, highlighting Orange County in all of its glory. 

Scenic Views, PR Chasers. Located on the southernmost portion of Huntington Beach, California, this course takes runners along the Santa Ana River Trail from Yorba Linda all the way to Huntington Beach State Park. 

Spanning the dryer desert land to areas near Disneyland, this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. As a largely flat and fast course with a gradual downhill throughout, this course is ideal for those looking to PR.

The Half Marathon starts 13.1 Miles into the full marathon course and does a small out-and-back to give us a location to start the race from off the course. It is a bused-out start as well. The course finishes in Huntington Beach State Park. 

This course is fully supported with aid stations posted every two miles. 

So, what do you receive with your registration? A custom race day t-shirt, a high-end custom finisher’s medal, overall plaque awards for top racers, and post-race food at the end!
