The live event has been cancelled due to Covid19 restrictions.
The state of California parks and recreation has informed me that all special events are cancelled until at least June 28 due to the Covid19 state mandated restrictions in place. They also do not foresee any new updates until that date.
June 28 gives us too little time to properly plan for an event this size and we have been forced to cancel the live event for this year.
If you are registered for this event the following options are available:
1. Run the race on your own as a virtual runner and we will mail you your swag
2. Transfer to next year's race date, July 18, 2021
3. Transfer to any of our events found at www.EliteSportsCA.com
Let us know what option works best for you and we will make the changes on our side.
Our next scheduled event at Emma Wood Group campground is on Nov 8 for the Surfers Point Marathon and hopefully the state restrictions are lifted by then.

Early start option:
We are proud to announce a “marathon early start” option for the full marathon runners that need a little more time to finish and still be part of all the fun at the post race party. “Early Start” is at 6 am on race day; BUT you have to let us know ahead of time so that we can capture your bib number for the official timing stats. We will NOT have all of our water stations setup until about 6:30 am so you are on your own for water for the first 30 minutes. You must know the course (out and back course) if you want to use the early option
Middle of the pack runners:
Great course for a new PR (personal record) this year. Mostly flat course, gentle ocean breeze and plenty of room to make your move towards your PR
Elite and Advanced runners:
This mostly flat course along the Historic Old Rincon Highway and a great way to test your speed. Beautiful ocean views, cool temp, fun people and a cold glass of beer after the race.
