  • Did the 5k in 2019

    The turnaround at the 5K was a little bit hard to manage--especially for the leaders of the race who had to double-back. That course isn't one that would allow the event to grow much. There are plenty of ways to make it a true loop in Irvine/Woodbridge area so I feel like it wasn't necessary to double back for so much of the course. It was fine for the number of participants THIS year, but it's going to be a problem in the future. Your sponsors were amazing. Participation was great and growing like crazy. This is a fun race and it was our second or third time doing it.

    HAVE A RACE DAY BID PICK UP! I DIDNT LIKE THERE WASNT ONE THIS YEAR!Over than that, the race fine
  • Did the 5k in 2019

    I had a good experience. Everyone was so friendly! I Do wish the course would have been more scenic instead of the bike path with all the construction. There is that pretty body of water and we went no where near it. Too bad. Also, Im from LA a bit of a bummer no race day bib pickup. I had to come down Friday after work and spent 3.5 hours total in traffic. Not fun. Then had to turn around and drive back the next morning. Otherwise, love the medal and tech shirt and the vendors were awesome!

  • Did the event in 2014

    This race is very small - limited to only 500 runners. I really enjoy smaller races because there's less pressure to PR, they cost less, there are fewer people on the race path, and they make great training races. The Operation Jack Marathon & Half Marathon raises money for a great cause - Autism. It's right on the beach at Dockweiler State Beach in Los Angeles. There's no expo, and bibs and t-shirts are given out prior to the start. The medal is awesome. It's looks like a huge military dog tag. By far, one of the best medals I've received. The prizes are fantastic too. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age group for both the marathon and half marathon are given a hand painted picture done by a child or adult with autism. They don't block off the bike path for the race, but since this race is the day after Christmas, there aren't a ton of other folks on the path.The course goes north first, starting right out of the parking lot. It goes down the bike path and turns up the river path until the turnaround at mile 4.5. You return up the bike path going past the start line for another 2.5 miles and then turnaround to finish the race. The full marathon doubles this path. The elevation is minimal. There's a small dip and rise around mile 3, and then an incline before mile 9 and mile 12, but you get the downhill on each side as well. I highly recommend this race for anyone visiting or local for the holiday seasoning. It helped me stay on track with my training throughout the holidays and forced me to be healthier than I would've normally.

    Holiday Half Marathon was supposed to be the last one (#14) for 2013. I had entertained Operation Jack last year, but didn't think I'd be ready. My training has shifted to be in optimal condition for LA Marathon 2014. Operation Jack appealed to me because it isn't a big race and receives a lot of local runner community support. The Operation Jack Autism Foundation serves to benefit autism-related charities nationwide.For real, this is the last one (#15) for me until January 2014. It's been a fun ride. Thanks for all the smiles, high five's and inspirational FaceBook posts. "Racing is pain, and that's why you do it, to challenge yourself and the limits of your physical and mental barriers. You don't experience that in an armchair watching television." -Mark Allen, 6-Time Hawaii Ironman World Champion

    State number 2. 18 days after my first ever marathon!I have a routine when I run a marathon. Or when I go out for a long run. I like my routine - I am comfortable with my routine and knowing it will bring me success. I didn't stick to a single thing with my routine for this marathon. And it worked out just fine - it taught me I don't necessarily need to stick to my routine. I also realize that by traveling to 50 states from Hawaii to run marathons it is unrealistic to rely on routine. So thank you Operation Jack for making me realize this. So why the lack of routine you may be wondering? Well hubby and I decided to take a road trip through California for the holidays! We started up north and ended in San Diego. We ran the Operation Jack Marathon about half way in between - the day after Christmas! The day before the marathon we spent driving from Half Moon Bay to LA area - we took the 1 which took us much longer then I originally thought! Our food for the day was not consistent, but at least we had a consistent water/Gatorade intake! The days leading up to the marathon? Completely off our normal diet and lots of brewery stops! Hey - I wasn't missing any of what we wanted to do in California! Plus, my hubby is a bit of a beer snob - so of course we had to hit up some brewery for tours and try new beers. All of this led us to the morning after Christmas at the Operation Jack marathon. I woke up not wanting to run a mile yet alone 26.2 of them that morning. I watched my husband crawl out of bed and begin to get ready to leave. I knew I needed to do the same. He was very excited because this was going to be his first marathon. I wasn't at the time feeling the same level of excitement. However, I dragged myself out of bed and began to get ready. Did I mention that I was cold too? Haha! I was definitely not waking up to a Hawaii morning! We made it down to the parking lot at Dockweiler state beach park. We looked at the board to see what number we were assigned. I was bib # 106. We then stood in line to get our bib and t-shirt. I tried not to be a wuss and bounce around too much from the chilly temperature - but I failed.We all gathered around the start line, listened to the route and off we went! The course was beautiful along the beach. It followed a bike path where bikes were actively going the entire race.For someone into biking also, like me, this was actually neat. Most of the bikes that passed were really nice bikes and gave me something to gawk at. The weather was beautiful. Aid stations were a good distance apart and since it followed an established bike path the bathrooms along it where wonderful! The last loop where you have to pass the finish line to get to the last loop and turn around and come back to the finish line is terribly taunting! All in all - this is a good small marathon, well supported. Don't be surprised if you find yourself running by yourself at times due to the size of the marathon. Operation Jack is for an amazing cause - and organized by Sam Felsenfeld. He is there to cheer on each runner - which is awesome! I'd run this again if I found myself out in LA around Christmastime again!
