Event Details

Join Justin Rudd for a FREE 9.3-mile fun sidewalk run (no street closures) across the length of Long Beach on Sat., Mar. 22, 9 a.m.

• Individual distance is 9.3 miles.
• Or, teams of two: 1st leg is 6.2 to the top of Signal Hill, and the 2nd leg is 3.1 miles to the beach.


START LINE and COURSE: at the northern-most point of Long Beach on Cherry Ave. (@70th St.) and run on the sidewalks of Cherry Ave. all the way to the Pacific Ocean (with a quick, steep uphill journey to the top of Signal Hill!). 

• This event is FREE. If you are inclined and want to support your favorite local charity, place of worship, or school and to participate in honor of that cause, you can write a $25 check (or other amount) directly to that organization. THIS IS OPTIONAL.

• Start at 9 a.m.: southwest corner of 70th St. @ Cherry Ave., 6978 Cherry Ave., Long Beach, 90805, basically at Cherryfield Village mobile home park, on the City of Paramount border where Cherrry turns in to Garfield Ave.  

Have someone drop you off at the start line and pick you up at the finish line.

 • Finish: northeast corner of Ocean Blvd. @ Cherry Ave.  NOTE: Justin will only be at the finish line area only for those completing the course in under 12 minute-miles.  

• Runners will receive a race number at check-in.
• Runners must provide their own water and/or snacks. We encourage you to have friends meet you along the way to keep you motivated, hydrated and energized.
• Runners must provide their own transportation to the start and finish (and to the exchange point on Signal Hill, for relay teams).
• Runners must obey traffic laws and stop at red lights.
• The entire run is on sidewalks along Cherry Ave., with exception of the climb up the sidewalks of Skyline Dr. in Signal Hill to the top of Hilltop Park, 335’ above sea level.
• This is a fun run. No course monitors, no refreshments, no water station, no timing, no t-shirts, no grand finish line, no race medals, no official restrooms, no awards. If you need a restroom, stop along the way at a McDonald's or a city park.
• Rain or shine event.
 
(BELOW) Start area on the Paramount/Long Beach border, where Cherrry turns in to Garfield Ave.
