About The Cupid Dash Half Marathon
The Cupid Dash Half Marathon in Long Beach, California is a fantastic race for runners of all levels. Held on 11 February 2023, the course takes you through picturesque scenery along the Pacific Coast Highway and down to Alamitos Bay. The route is mostly flat with some rolling hills which makes it a great option for those who are looking for an enjoyable yet challenging run.
The weather during that time of year tends to be mild and pleasant, so it’s ideal running conditions. You can expect temperatures ranging from 55-65°F depending on the day and sunny skies most of the time. It’s definitely much better than braving snowy or rainy conditions! The views are breathtaking as you make your way around Long Beach’s shoreline; you’ll see ocean waves crashing against rocks, colorful boats dotting the harbor, and seagulls flying overhead.
You won’t be alone out there either—the crowds at this event are usually quite large and enthusiastic! Locals come out in droves to show their support for all participants whether they’re running their first half marathon or going after a personal best time. There’s always a festive atmosphere throughout with cheering spectators lining up along certain sections of the course every now and then adding to its charm even moreso.
Another special thing about this race is that each runner receives a commemorative t-shirt when they cross the finish line as well as other goodies such as snacks and drinks provided by sponsors during pre-race registration check-in. So if you decide to take part in this event next year be sure not only to prepare yourself physically but also mentally because it will surely be an unforgettable experience!
