The 9th annual Ventura half marathon and 5K taking place on Sunday, February 13th. Last year the event took place in March but we moved it making it 5 weeks before the LA Marathon which is a great time to get in a fast 1/2 marathon before a marathon. The course is out and back along a bike path that runs from Ventura to Ojai. The weather is typically cool and the course has no major hills although the first half does have a slight incline so the second half has a slight decline. There will be 4 water stops along the way. The 5K is out and back along the same course. The venue has great parking and the event provides a low key but fun atmosphere with great people and food. All pre-registered half marathon participants will get an environmentally friendly technical running top and all pre-registered 5K runners will receive a free event t-shirt.
