The Clif 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. A shuttle will take the participants to the start line at the Ventura Unified School District building. From there, the runners run north towards Ojai on streets and our paved bike path till mile 4 where they will start the gradual downhill winding through Ventura’s west side valley to Ventura and the gorgeous oceanfront 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. The finish line and festival are directly adjacent to the beach which beckons you for a post race soak. The course should run lightning fast!
ATTENTION HALF MARATHONERS!!!!- The 5k will join into the course at mile 10.5. If you are hoping to finish in 1:12- 1:20, there may be groups of 5k’ers on course until they get a chance to spread out.

Course Time Limit
Due to permitting restrictions, we will now have a course cutoff. Runners must be to mile 11.4 by 5.5 hours (11:30 am) in order to be allowed to finish. Any runner that misses this cutoff will either be directed straight to the finish area (approx. 1/2 mile away) or picked up via course vans.
We will not leave the finish area until all runners are done, but police and volunteers on course will leave at 12:00 pm
-Course subject to change-
**New Course Map Coming Shortly**
As runners are returning to Ventura you will be directed onto the Bike Path at Shell Rd (at the Clif Bar/Aid Station).
Full and Half Marathoners will not come straight down Ventura Ave. like in the 2016 course map above.
