Get your PR in 2024 at the Ventura Marathon
Both the half and full marathons run gently downhill from the Ojai area down to Ventura followed by a post-race festival in the heart of downtown Ventura.
Full Marathon – The race starts in the eclectic town of Ojai, California and finishes in the vibrant beach town of Ventura. The race drops ~900 feet providing a gently downhill course that is crazy fast without the damage of ultra downhill marathons. In 2022 we were California’s 3rd top Boston Marathon Qualifier.
This year’s Full Marathon had over a 25% BQ (Boston Marathon Qualifying) percentage making it one of the top qualifiers in the Country.
Half Marathon – The race starts just South of Ojai, California and winds down roads and the Ojai-Ventura bike path dropping over 500 feet before finishing in Downtown Ventura. The course is FAST and is USATF certified making it a perfect qualifier for the New York Marathon.
Race Perks – We are bringing back favorite racer amenities, including a free waffle breakfast, one free craft beer or drink (adding some non-alcoholic options this year in addition to beer), free race photos, handmade age group awards, and more.
We are excited to see everyone for another fun and fast year!
