The Malibu Half Marathon & 5K returns in 2016 with a beachside course that’s flat, fast, and fun from start to finish. Soak up spectacular views of waves crashing on the shoreline, surfers and sunbathers in the water, rocky bluffs and golden hills, and hundreds of inspired runners on the road. This event is a rare opportunity to run the storied Pacific Coast Highway along the beach without fighting cars or traffic.
Event details and schedule
The half marathon and 5K courses both start and end just north of Point Mugu beach, offering participants a beautiful out-and-back route along the pristine northern Malibu coastline. From the starting line, the course proceeds south, passing Mugu Rock, one of the most distinctive landmarks on PCH and a cinematic backdrop for numerous films and TV commercials. After making the turnaround (just north of Neptune’s Net restaurant for half-marathoners), runners head back up the coast to the finish line. With no significant hills, this course is perfect for anyone looking to attempt a personal record — or just looking for a gorgeous, well-organized event.
The Half Marathon course is USATF-certified and participants will have 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete their race, i.e. 16 minutes-per-mile pace for the Half-Marathon.
Don’t miss out, come and run with us on November 6th, 2016!
