Route information
Starting in beautiful downtown Ojai California, the course begins at just over 700 ft and gradually descends to sea-level over 22 miles, and finishing near the historic Ventura, California Pier. The course is a lightning fast, USATF certified.
Half Marathon
he start line is on a quiet country road, Santa Ana Blvd in in the little town of Oak View. The half will begin at the half way point of the Full Marathon. The gradual downhill nature of the route will wind through Ventura’s west side valley to Ventura. The gorgeous oceanfront awaits with views of the Channel Islands. Try not to get distracted by the beauty of the area as you still have more than a mile of ocean side running to do. Finishing just past the historic Ventura Pier, the Mountains 2 Beach Half-Marathon course is designed to be fast with a little down hill to give the 13.1 milers a similar experience to the marathoners. The finish line and festival are directly adjacent to the beach which beckons you for a post race soak.
