RESIDENT/SPECTATOR INFO. Please note that the marathon operates as an out-and-back course so streets will be re-opened for track as the last athletes pass an area. These are approximate times of street re-openings, times may vary. Police officers will be at every major intersection to allow cars to cross the marathon course once there is a break in the race.

Please allow extra time for travel because of the street closures and trac delays. The marathon course has a “rolling” re-opening. The Long Beach Police will re-open streets as the event goes on and athletes have moved past a certain area.

FREE PARKING FOR BELMONT SHORE RESIDENTS is available in the beach parking lots along Ocean Blvd. Enter the lots near the Belmont Pool o Granada Ave and park for free Saturday night through Sunday. Residents can exit the lots on Sunday at GRANADA AVE ONLY and be escorted across the race course by police. Be one of 100,000 spectators who will be a part of the 31st JetBlue Long Beach Marathon on Sunday, October 11! If you are not a registered participant or one of the 2,000 volunteers, there is another way to show your support… CHEER ON THE RUNNERS! Your support provides encouragement and excitement for everyone. Every wave, applaud and smile given to a participant reinforces the collaboration of this Long Beach community supported event.
