A field of about 2,500 from 46 states and 22 nations is expected for Sunday’s OC Marathon, which will take runners from Newport Beach to Costa Mesa, according to organizers.
The 26-mile, 385-yard course begins in front of the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa, then goes through Corona del Mar and the Newport Harbor area.
The runners then enter Costa Mesa, pass the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, going around the South Coast Plaza and through Segerstrom High School.
The course continues for one mile in Santa Ana, then turns onto the Santa Ana River Trail for 1.5 miles, exiting at the Gisler foot bridge to run through the Mesa Verde neighborhoods and then the “Bird Streets.” The race ends at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa.
