Runners in the Ventura Hammer Half Marathon and 5K races follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes to the northeast of the city just off the Ojai Freeway, at the park near the intersection of Stanley Avenue and North Ventura Avenue. From there, runners head out on a course that winds around the park’s perimeter and then merges with the trail, which runs roughly parallel to the freeway as it winds its way northward.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
