Have you ever experienced that sense of accomplishment you get crossing that finishing line and hearing your name announced over the PA?

Or have you ever wondered what it’s like to take part in a race?

Some might feel intimidated! However, we feel we have created a race for everyone. You can be a professional athlete, a fit amateur or just want to come along for a pleasurable jog, we are convinced you will fall in love with our Malibu Half-Marathon & 5K run.

 

Rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, waves crashing against the shoreline, and plenty of rugged hills await you on a gorgeous point-to-point route along the Pacific Coast Highway at the Malibu Half Marathon & 5K, which makes its 8th annual this year.

The out and back Half-Marathon & 5K course starts and ends at north of Point Mugu beach (not to be confused with Point Magu State Park). Point Mugu Beach lies just few miles east of the Naval Air Base that shares its name, among the Santa Monica Mountains and just south of the Boney Mountains State Wilderness Area.

With more than 70 miles of hiking trails that criss-cross its hills, mountains and valleys, the park is probably just as popular for its five miles of beaches, where runners will likely see dolphins out in the water as they make their way down the highway.
From the starting line, the course then proceeds from west to east entirely along the Pacific Coast Highway to the half-way turnaround just north of Neptune’s Net restaurant. After making the turn, runners head back to the finish line. The course has no significant hills and is virtually flat (with a few very gentle rolling hills).

Along the way, the race route offers some of California’s coastal most spectacular views along which the only modern intrusion is the highway, while just a few miles past the turnaround point you will find beautiful beachfront homes, many of which are owned by A-list Hollywood’s celebrities.

 

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.

Shuttle bus transportation will be provided from the designated parking area between 5:30 AM and 12:00 PM.

Running a race takes dedication, preparation and enthusiasm. These elements are our team’s core values. Our mission is to promote a healthy and athletic lifestyle and to create a platform for charitable giving in line with the values of the community we represent. And because of the importance of their grassroots efforts and commitment to the Malibu Community, ‘The Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu’ are the race flagship charity. The club’s mission is to significantly enhance the lives of Malibu youth which includes a focus on bilingual counseling, education and Angels at Risk, a drug intervention program for teens and their families.

 

 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Malibu are also hosting the Health & Fitness Expo on Saturday, November 5th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Malibu Teen Center adjacent to the Malibu High School. In addition to picking up your Bibs with attached timing tags and the event bags race packet, the Health and Fitness Expo features merchandise for sale, demonstrations and information from a variety of merchants and vendors.

 

 

Whether you are a runner, a family member, a friend or a spectator, come and celebrate our 8th year together with us, the Boys & Girls and the volunteers!
