Event Weekend is May 3-5, 2024


The Hoag OC Marathon would not be possible without the support of over 2000 volunteers that assist throughout the event weekend. We will host and support approximately 170 schools (10,000 kids) for our Kids Run the OC, another 15,000 runners in the 5k, half and full marathons and 20+ Charity Partners from the Orange County community. Since our inception, the OC Marathon and related events have raised and helped our partners raise over $6 million in charitable funds. We expect 25,000 participants in all the events and 25,000 spectators.

We have excellent opportunities for groups to volunteer together! Water stations, Course Monitors, Finish Line, etc. Bring your coworkers, friends & family and take part in the fun of giving back to the local community!
