Mountains To Beach Marathon and Half

May 26, 2013 · Ojai, CA

Distance: 13.1 miles, 26.2 miles, 5K

Uniquely situated and completely surrounded by beautful mountains, the city of Ojai holds the start of the Clif Bar Mountains 2 Beach Marathon.  This point to point race winds through the Ventura River Valley as it makes its way to the pristine beaches of the last great surf town in California, Ventura. Runners will love that 18 of the first 20 miles have a net down hill of over 700 feet, which is prime to make you faster, but not hurt the knees.  After a six mile pancake flat tour of beach front Ventura, runners and their families are treated to a finish line party only steps away from the surf and the shops and restaurants of Historic Downtown Ventura.
