Get Ready to Run!


The 43rd Annual Palos Verdes Marathon will be held Saturday, May 2, 2009, at 7:00 a.m. It will begin and end at Point Fermin Park (807 Paseo del Mar, San Pedro). According to the official website, the Palos Verdes Marathon is the second longest continuously running Marathon in the United States, second only to the Boston Marathon. That was news to me; I am impressed.

For residents, it means we probably want to stay clear of Palos Verdes Drive South and Palos Verdes Drive West & Paseo del Mar in Lunada Bay the morning of May 2nd. It looks like a new route this year. Click here to see this year’s route.

There is also a Half Marathon beginning at 7:30 a.m. and a 5-K/Community Fun Walk beginning at 8:00 a.m. This is a beautiful run along our coast with its breathtaking views.
