Join us for the 8th edition of the Ventura Marathon. Both the Half and Full Marathon are Point to Point Downhill Races. This point-to-point marathon is the perfect amount of downhill starting in Ojai and ending in downtown Ventura. The course winds along the paved paths of the Ojai Valley Trail and Ventura River Trail bringing runners toward the coast and one of Southern California’s most popular surf destinations. Qualify for Boston or run a new PR and spend a weekend in beautiful Ventura.
