Find Your Team:

Join Team Challenge for our new winter race- the Surf City Half Marathon and Marathon. You can run or walk 13.1 or 26.2 miles, but it’s about so much more than distance you’ll go. We are a community, a family bonded together for a purpose much larger than ourselves - to help find cures for the 1.6 million Americans suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Be part of the solution when you race with us at this award winning race in beautiful Huntington Beach, California!

Both the half and full marathon race courses start along the iconic Pacific Coast Highway and pass the famous Huntington Beach pier. Along this fun, flat course, you’ll enjoy views of the beautiful Bolsa Chica Wetlands, and may even get cheered on by a surfer as you head toward the finish line! With a course time limit of 5 to 5.5 hours (depending on starting corral), the half marathon is very walker friendly! Huntington Beach’s coastline (it’s the longest uninterrupted beachfront anywhere on the West Coast) and mild winter makes it the perfect destination for a February race.
