Route information
The Half Marathon starts and ends in famous Zuma Beach, Malibu offering participants a beautiful out-and-back route along the pristine Malibu coastline.
From the starting line, the course proceeds on Westwards Beach Rd and then turns left on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) passing Zuma Beach, one of the most distinctive landmarks on PCH and a cinematic backdrop for numerous films and TV commercials. After making the turnaround, just north of San Nicolas Canyon, runners head back down the coast to the finish line.
Due to the out and back nature of the course (what goes up also goes down), the total elevation ascension is 330 feet, which makes it perfect for anyone looking to attempt a personal record — or just looking for a gorgeous, well-organized event. There will be 6 aid stations along the course:
Water stations will be located every mile Electrolyte drink provided by Gatorade will be at miles: 6/7, 4/9, 2/11, 1/12 Energy gels will be provided by Honey Stinger and located at mile 6/7
Basic First AID will be available at the all water stations

Time Limits
All participants are expected to be able to complete the Half Marathon course in 4 hours, i.e. 18 minutes per mile. The time count begins after the start of the last wave of runners.
Runners/Walkers who are unable to maintain an 18-minute pace, although encouraged to complete the race, will be asked to remain out of previously-closed traffic lanes and obey regular traffic laws.
The Highway will be reopened to traffic on a “rolling basis” determined by that pace. The Finish Line will stay open for runners and spectators until 12:00 PM.
Aid stations, official finishing times, commemorative medals, and post-race refreshments will only be available to runners who maintain an 18 minutes-per-mile pace or below.
