Beachfront 5K Course Description

With a beautiful ocean side start, the Inside Track Beachfront 5k starts near the finish line for all three events and heads out the Promenade and past the Pier. Near the Jolly Oyster the runners make their way through the turnaround point and head back down the bike path from which they came. Watch for on coming runners for the next half mile or so then jump off the bike path at Sanjon and join in with the full and half marathon at miles 25 and 12 respectively. From there you will come back to the beach and your final mile of the race. Be sure to stick around for the festivities and beer garden and to cheer on your fellow runners. 5k participants will enjoy the same finish line as the Marathoners and Half Marathoners, along with all the amenities and of course the Beachside Party afterwards. And the best thing yet…. 100% of net proceeds of the Beachfront 5k goes directly to benefit the Ventura Education Partnership. An all volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds directly for the classrooms of Ventura.
