The 5K walk/run start line is at the OC Fairgrounds, which is the finish line for the Full Marathon and the Half Marathon. The 5K start time is 7:30 a.m.

It continues past the Newport Harbor Yacht Clubs and multi-million dollar bayside homes and yachts. Newport Beach’s Back Bay comes next, with exceptional water and wildlife views of the Upper Newport Bay Estuary Reserve. The course leaves Newport Beach for Costa Mesa, passing by the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, South Coast Plaza, and onto the Santa Ana River Trail before the home stretch towards the OC Fairgrounds.
