You can watch participants start, finish and cross the 6 mile mark all near the finish Line Festival area at Marina Green. You can also watch runners along the beach path (miles 7-10), then climb the stairs to watch them return along Ocean Blvd (miles 24-26). 6,000 students are expected to cheer runners through California State University Long Beach.

One of the nice things about the Long Beach Marathon is that spectators can have a view of the finish line. Based on how long your runner/walker usually takes, plan to be there early to cheer them across the line. Be sure to plan a meeting spot away from the finish line to find your participant after the event.
