Event prize purse increases to $27,000 with more than $10,000 designated for California athletes; 10th edition on Sunday, May 4, 2014

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — (February 4, 2014) – The U.S. Bank OC Marathon has launched the Cal-Edge Athlete Development Program, increasing the total prize purse to $27,000 with more than $10,000 designated for California athletes. In addition, runners will have the opportunity to earn additional bonuses if they meet the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials “A” or “B” qualifying standards.

“With more than 6,500 children training to run their own ‘marathon’ as part of our Kids Run the OC, the time is right to expand our support to California elite athletes, giving them an extra Edge as they pursue their dream of qualifying for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Los Angeles and perhaps the Rio Olympics,” said Gary Kutscher, Race Director of the U.S. Bank OC Marathon. “Our Cal-Edge Athlete Development program provides post-collegiate athletes from California much needed financial support as they chase their Olympic dreams.”

The inaugural program allows local top athletes to qualify for California resident-only prize money in addition to the traditional prize purse. Runners will be able to earn both Overall and Cal-Edge prize purses. Qualifying athletes will be considered for a complimentary bib number, entry into a seeded race corral, race day amenities and VIP finish line festival access. To be considered for the Cal-Edge Athlete Development Program, a runner must have proof of race results for the marathon at sub-3:05:00 for women and sub-2:35:00 for men. Athletes may also qualify with half-marathon times from the past 2 years and must meet the time standards of sub-1:24:00 for women and sub-1:15:00 for men.

The $27,000 prize money will be split among top finishing athletes in several categories, including more than $10,000 in the Cal-Edge Athlete Development prize purse. $2000 will be awarded to the overall male and female OC Marathon champions as well as the top male and female Cal-Edge athletes. In addition, a time bonus will be awarded to any finisher who meets or breaks the “A” or “B” standard for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. For additional information or for Elite or Cal-Edge consideration, please contact AnneMarie at

The 10th U.S. Bank OC Marathon will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014. More than 22,000 runners will participate in the marathon, half-marathon, Wahoo’s OC 5K and Kids Run the OC. Additionally, thousands of spectators line the course, the start line in front of the Newport Beach Marriott and finish line at OC Fair and Event Center, while an additional 30,000 attend the two-day Allergan® Health & Fitness Expo which showcases national brands and state of the art footwear and training technology.
