Flat, Fast, Beautiful, and Beachside 

M2B 5K Course Description

With a beautiful ocean side start, the M2B 5k starts near the finish line in San Buenaventura State Beach Park. You run beachside along the bike path and promenade all the way out past the Ventura Pier. Once you hit the turn around at the Flagpole head back towards the pier where you will veer off the Boardwalk and head towards Harbor Blvd. Once you are on Harbor you merge into the Full/Half Course for another beachside return down the bike path and back into the Finish Chute at the San  Buenaventura State Beach Park. 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 Full and Half Marathoners.
