The Seaside Marathon is an all-flat certified Boston Qualifier. The Start and Finish will be at Ventura Promenade Park along the beautiful Oceanfront boardwalk. Then travel along the Ventura bike path to the Historic Old Rincon Highway along the amazing Ventura Coast line. Miles of Ocean views that will keep you in awe as you stroll to the turn around point and back to the start/finish line. Aid stations every 1.5 miles.
Weekend warriors / Beginners / walkers:
Yes, very walker friendly course, mostly flat, plenty of aid stations, and loads of fun! Generous 7:00 hour time limit for the full marathon so take your time and enjoy the scenery, all levels of fitness are welcome at our events.
Middle of the pack runners:
Great course for a new PR (personal record) this year. Mostly flat course, gentle ocean breeze and plenty of room to make your move towards your PR.
Elite and Advanced runners:
This mostly flat course along the Historic Old Rincon Highway is a great way to test your speed. Beautiful ocean views, cool temp, fun people and a cold glass of beer after the race.
We are proud to announce that all runners will be awarded a free glass of beer and a plate of street tacos at post race! And yes you can buy more beers for $4 each (must be 21 or older for the beer); if you’re under 21, we will have a free root beer for you.
