Legends and Legacy Runners

Background Info

In 2011 the OC Marathon launched its Legacy Program. If you have participated in our virtual full or half marathon in 2020 and the virtual half/full marathon or in-person half marathon in 2021, you would have still been eligible to receive your Legacy Appreciation Gift at the 2022 event. For 2023, if you have completed the half (virtual or in-person) in 2021 and 2022, you will be a Legacy runner in 2023. You don't need to contact us about eligibility, you will be automatically entered into our Legacy Club when you register for the 2023 race if you ran the past two years. There will also be a confirmation page available as we get closer to the race for you to verify you have been entered as a Legacy. Legacy Members continue to receive Legacy Appreciation Gifts for every year that your streak is kept alive!


Deferring to the next year will not maintain legacy status.

Visit the OC Legacy Lounge

Our legacy runners (participants who have ran our event for 3 years in a row or have a COROS GPS watch) will be able to access the special COROS OC Legacy Lounge. The OC Legacy Lounge will offer an exclusive shaded area near the main stage where runners can enjoy an extra beer, and kick back in a lounge environment.

2023 Legacy Members Appreciation Gift will be available at the OC Lifestyle and Fitness Expo to pick up! Make sure you don't miss it!

On Race Weekend

Where to Pick up Your Legacy Appreciation gift

You can pick up your Legacy Gift Item at the Legacy Booth (next to the Beach Cities Challenge Booth) which will be centrally located in the OC Lifestyle and Fitness Expo.


The Legacy Runners will have the OC Legacy Logo printed directly on their bib.  If there are any issues with your bib, or if your name does not appear on the confirmation page (when available) please email us at legacy@ocmarathon.com or visit Solutions at the OC Lifestyle and Fitness Expo as well.

The Legends Club (formerly The Founders)

The Legends Club (formerly called the Founders Legacy Club) members have run every race since the OC Marathon's inception in 2004! The Legends Club members are also Legacy Runners.  Founders club pricing is $65.00 for the Half Marathon, and $75.00 for the Full Marathon.  Registration codes for all Founder's Club members will go out via email in September.  If you do not receive the email or have questions about whether you are eligible for Founders Club status, please email us at legacy@ocmarathon.com.
