Activities: Running race, Full Marathon (26.2 Mi), Half Marathon (13.1 Mi), 5K (3.1 Miles), 1K

Uniquely situated and completely surrounded by beautiful mountains, the city of Ojai holds the start of the Mountains 2 Beach Marathon while the half starts closer to the beach. 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 the gradual downhill nature of the race, which is prime to make you faster but not hurt the knees, and the amazing weather of the area. After a final 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. As a certified Boston Qualifier, the course (marathon only), the race and the surrounding communities make for the perfect destination marathon and half.

Covid Protocols may be in place based on current guidance from the State and County.

Bracket/Division Details & Fees:

  1. Full Marathon

    Starting in downtown Ojai, you will head east out of town and run through orchards completely surrounded by mountains. Around mile 6 you make your way back into downtown Ojai and head west to a beautiful overlook of the Ventura River Preserve. After a couple miles you will jump on the Ventura River Bike Path and take it to the town of Oak View where you begin running down quiet country roads. Try not to trip as you are looking around at how beautiful the area is. Once in Downtown Ventura you will work your way across our Historic downtown area and come down to the famous Ventura Coast. Views of the Pier and islands would normally make you stop to admire them, but you still have a little ways to go. After running beach front for the next mile plus, you enter the finish line chute just a stones throw from the water to cheers from your friends and new found M2B family. ***Course is subject to change without notice.
