Turn-By-Turn Directions

Course Description:

Our goal was to create a flat, fast, and scenic course with an epic beach finish. The highest point in the race is less than 100 feet in elevation with no real hills and we finish at the beach. Our course runs from the Ventura Pier to the Port Hueneme Pier and back. 

Course Time Limit

We have a 6-hour time limit. However if you expect to be between 6 hours and 7 hours we have an unofficial early start option at 5:30am effectively raising the time limit to 7 hours. Please note the first hour is unsupported meaning the roads will not be closed and aid stations may not be set up for the first four or so miles.
