Arrive to a sunrise on the ocean horizon. Warm up to views of surfers catching waves at Surfers Point. Find your stride on the fast and flat course along the beach. Get that personal record. Celebrate with a Sierra Nevada beer toast.
That's what you get at the Half Marathon, 10k and 5k race experience in Ventura-the quaint beach town that makes you want to to kick off those running shoes after a job well done and chill out in the sand.
Just an hour and a half drive from Los Angeles, the LaceUp Ventura experience offers a getaway for the runner-a run-cation in fact. Many participants have enjoyed taking the LaceUp weekend to run and relax in Ventura. Packing list made simple: running shoes and flip flops.
As a racer, you can expect ocean views, fresh air and a flat 5k and 10k course that is primed for PRs. The half marathon course has some elevation. You'll start at Surfers Point and run parallel to the ocean along the road, then wrap back around on the beachside boardwalk before finishing just past Ventura Pier. That's where you'll take an oceanside finish line photo to remember.
Don't forget the kids! New this season, we've added the popular Kid's 1k Race, which includes a T-shirt and finisher's medal for $15 (food not included).
