Course Time Limit—

There is a 6-hour time limit for the Marathon. If you plan to run a longer Marathon, please know that you can start early. However, please be aware that directional signs and aid stations may not be up in the beginning, as they are all based on a 6:00 AM start. Timing mats will not be live before the event, so if you start early please wear a GPS watch and let the timing company know the exact time you started (GPS watches use GPS satellites to establish a precise time of day just as the timing systems do) so they can establish your exact time.

Spread the Love—

Spread your love of running! Invite your friends and family to run at Ventura with you. Give them your personal referral code (found in your confirmation email) and earn huge prizes! Learn more about the Referal Program, HERE.

Team Program—

Running teams with 5+ members will receive Lexus LaceUp Ventura Marathon running socks.
