Course Information:

The 5K course starts on the Promenade in front of Aloha Steakhouse to Ventura State Beach. Participants will loop the State Beach before meeting back up with the Promenade and heading past the starting line towards Surfers Point. Participants will loop a cone before heading back to the finish at the California Street Plaza.

We will have signage and volunteers on the course to help direct you! This course is scenic, flat, and fast.

Team Information:

Last year at our inaugural event, we had some amazing team spirit. We would love for the team spirit to continue this year, and to honor the legacy of those that we know that have been affected by cancer.

There is no extra cost to start a team! Simply choose a team name, and be sure that all your team members reference that team name while registering!

We will be offering two great team contests this year!

1) Team Spirit Award: We will be awarding the team with the most team spirit with a special prize. Some fun ways to show your team spirit are: Create a Team Shirt in Honor/Memory of those you are running or walking for, Pick a Team Color or Theme to wear to show team unity, and/or Create a Team Banner to Honor/Remember those that you run/walk for. The possibilities are endless, and we welcome your creativity! 2) Largest Team Award: We will be awarding the team with the most participants with a special prize.

Join in the fun & get creative. We can’t wait to see you & your team at the 2nd Annual Cancer Hope Foundation 5K!

Parking Information:

We recommend that runners park in the Free City of Ventura parking lot on Santa Clara St between California St and Chestnut. You will then walk straight down California St towards the ocean. The Start/Finish location is on the Promenade between Aloha Steakhouse and Crowne Plaza.

There is also paid parking directly off Harbor Blvd. just East of Crowne Plaza as well as under the pier. If you eat at one of the Promenade restaurants (Aloha Steakhouse. C-Street Cafe, Eric Ericssons) after the race you can get parking validated for free. Otherwise they charge $2/hour or $8/day per vehicle at the time of exit.

Our energies are currently concentrated on Camp Keepsake, a program which offers a cost-free camp retreat for adult cancer patients/survivors, their children and friends.
