The entrance to all weekend events is through the California Street Plaza, at the bottom of South California Street. You can view the parking map below to visualize how to walk there once you park.

If you want to use a physical address you can use 364 S. California St. Ventura, CA 93001 which is the address for Aloha Steakhouse. The race start and packet pick up are all within a quarter mile of this location.

On race morning we recommend using Seaward Ave or San Jon rather than California St. Please give yourself an extra 20 minutes to park. There are plenty of free spots but at large races everyone seems to arrive at about the same time. See below the map for more information.

Recommended Parking for race morning is at the Ventura County Fairgrounds for $5. There are enough free spots for everyone but you may have to spend a little time searching for whats open. The address for the fairgrounds is 10 W Harbor Blvd, Ventura, CA 93001. It is a 1/2mile walk from the Fairgrounds to the Start line. You can walk straight down Harbor Blvd to the Pier or can walk on the Promenade./Boardwalk.


Road ClosuresHarbor Blvd will be closed between California Street and San Jon Rd starting at 5am.
