About The Malibu Half Marathon
The Malibu Half Marathon is an exciting and scenic race that takes place in beautiful Malibu, California. The 13.1-mile course winds through the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway, offering runners breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains throughout the run.
The route begins at Zuma Beach Park before continuing up a section of winding hills to Latigo Canyon Road, where runners can enjoy spectacular vistas from high above the coastline. After passing Pepperdine University and its picturesque campus, runners make their way down to sea level as they approach Point Dume State Beach for some amazing coastal views before heading back towards Zuma Beach Park for a finish on the beachfront promenade.
November in Southern California typically has mild temperatures with highs around 70 °F (21 °C) during race day – perfect running weather! Some rain may occur but it’s generally minimal this time of year so you won’t have to worry about getting wet while you’re out there on your run!
The crowds at this half marathon are always enthusiastic and supportive – no matter what pace you’re running at or what distance you’re tackling – everyone will be cheering each other on! It’s a great atmosphere that really makes it special when crossing that finish line. Alongside all this support there will also be plenty of aid stations set up throughout the course as well as music playing along certain sections which helps break up any lulls in momentum when it comes to powering through those miles!
Overall, if you’re looking for an enjoyable yet challenging half marathon experience with incredible scenery then look no further than Malibu Half Marathon – it truly is one event that should not be missed!
