About The Seaside Marathon
The Seaside Marathon in Ventura, California is a half marathon race that takes place every year on 12 February. This popular event draws thousands of runners from all over the world to participate in the 13.1-mile course.
The route of the race begins at San Buenaventura State Beach and winds its way through Ventura’s beautiful coastal neighborhoods and beachfront parks. Runners will have breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean as they journey along this scenic course where they can take in stunning sunsets, lush greenery, and idyllic landscapes throughout their run.
The weather during this time of year is typically mild and sunny with only occasional rain showers which makes it an ideal running environment for most participants; however, temperatures can still be cool so be sure to dress appropriately if participating! The crowds are usually quite large but supportive and encouraging throughout your entire run; many spectators come out to cheer on all the competitors during their race day experience too!
One unique feature about this particular half marathon is that it also includes a 5k option for those who don’t want to do a full 13 miles or aren’t comfortable running long distances yet. Additionally, there are plenty of post-race activities available such as live music performances and food vendors giving you something fun to look forward to after crossing that finish line!
Overall, if you’re looking for a challenging yet enjoyable half marathon experience then consider signing up for next year’s Seaside Marathon in Ventura – with its beautiful scenery, typical weather conditions during February/March months, supportive crowd atmosphere plus extras like music performances afterwards -you won’t regret it!
