365 Things To Do In Palos Verdes – Run the Palos Verdes Marathon

Palos Verdes Marathon

The 45th Annual Palos Verdes Marathon will be held Saturday, May 14, 2010, at 7:30 a.m.  This year the Marathon has moved and the new start and finish is at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.  Once again you will be able to enjoy the beautiful ocean views, the Palos Verdes Homes and the rolling hills that make up this beautiful Peninsula. 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.  Palos Verdes Marathon is actually a qualifying marathon for the Boston Marathon.  Pretty cool, don’t you think?

With the Marathon  and Half Marathon starting at 7:30 a.m., the 5K/walk will be starting at 8:00 a.m.  The fees for running the Marathon are $80, Half Marathon $70 and the 5K will be $30.  You must register by Wednesday, May 11, 2011 @ 11:59p.m..

Since parking at the Terranea Resort will be limited, it is advisable to park at The Promenade at the Peninsula, 550 Deep Valley Drive, Rolling Hills Estates.  There will be a 10-20 minute bus ride to the starting point at Terranea so you will need to allow extra time.

Terranea Resort is located at 6610 Palos Verdes Drive South, Rancho Palos Verdes 90275.  For more information regarding the Marathon go to www.palosverdes.com/marathon.
