Clif Bar Mountains 2 Beach Marathon and Half

May 22nd- May 31st 2021 Ventura, CA 93001 US Directions
Event: Touchless Full Marathon
Come and race in person using our partner app or your GPS watch. The routes will be open from May 22nd- May 31st 2021. The route will be measured as if we were certifying it so you know it is accurate. 

Starting in downtown Ojai, near our traditional starting line, you will head east out of town and run through orchards completely surrounded by mountains. Around mile 6 you make your way back into downtown Ojai and head west to a beautiful overlook of the Ventura River Preserve. After a couple miles you will jump on the Ventura River Bike Path and take it all the way down to Ventura. Try not to trip as you are looking around at how beautiful the area is. Once in Downtown Ventura you will continue down our bike path and run right into the beach, but don’t stop, you still have a few miles to go. After running beach front for the next 2 miles, you enter the community of Pierpont and reach your finish right next to Inside Track running store.

NOTE- There will be no traffic control or route support of any kind. You must obey rules of the road at all times. That means, use crosswalks and stay to the shoulder/ sidewalk and always be on the lookout for cars. Carry your own water (or have a friend meet you at various locations) and be thoroughly trained for the distance as we will not have any medical staff available. We highly recommend carrying your phone for emergencies.
