About The Rockin Shamrock Half Marathon
The Rockin Shamrock Half Marathon in Long Beach, California is the perfect event for runners of all levels. Taking place on 11 March, 2023, this 13.1-mile course offers a flat and fast route along beautiful scenery.
Starting at Shoreline Aquatic Park, runners will take off through downtown Long Beach before heading south toward Alamitos Bay and Naples Island. From there you’ll pass by some of the city’s most iconic landmarks such as The Queen Mary and Rainbow Harbor Lighthouse before making a loop around Belmont Pier. After that it’s back up to Shoreline Aquatic Park where you’ll finish your race with an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean!
As far as weather goes, March can be quite unpredictable in Southern California but typically temperatures range from 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit which creates great running conditions for most people. What makes this half marathon even more enjoyable is its wonderful crowd atmosphere; thousands of spectators come out to cheer on every runner so you’ll never feel alone during your journey! Plus local bands line the course providing an energetic soundtrack throughout the day.
If that wasn’t enough to entice you, here are a few extra reasons why everyone should consider participating in Rockin Shamrock: awards are given out based on age group categories (no matter how fast or slow you go), finishers receive medals and commemorative t-shirts after they cross the finish line, plus there’s even complimentary food & drinks available at post-race celebrations! So don’t miss out – sign up today for one of Southern California’s best half marathons!
