OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION

RACE PHOTOS


Your event photo will be professionally taken in multiple locations by Captivating Sports Photos. Photos will be available for purchase after the event. A link will be made available on the race website under photos.




SPECTATORS


Because we are such a beautiful, secluded and scenic course, it does not provide a great platform for cheering on your loved one along the course. The best place to see them running will be at the end of the course in the finish area.




FOOD AND WATER


This event is committed to preserving Malibu’s natural environments and in order to comply with the recent single-use plastic ban by the City, we will be serving water in reciclable water cups instead of plastic bottles at the finish line.

Ample post-race food will be available for athletes only and includes, but is not limited to:

  • Oranges

  • Bananas

  • KIND Snack Bars

  • Bagels

  • Artisana Nut Butter Squeeze Pack

  • Pretzels

Water refil stations and electrolyte drinks provided by Gatorade Endurance, will be available at the finish.




EQUIPMENT AND CLOTHING


All participants are encouraged to bring some warm clothes and different shoes for the post-race party. Sandals feel amazing after a race!!!

  • Wear something old and warm to the start line. Simply shed the garment and we will pick it up and donate it to GOODWILL.

  • Typical race start temperature is 57 degrees.

  • Typical finish line temperature is 70 degrees.

  • Wear Sunscreen!!!!




BEER GARDEN/RESPONSIBLE DRINKING


There will be an amazing Beer Garden lining the finish line chute available to all participants and spectators 21 years of age and older. A government issued photo ID will be required.

No ID= No Entry

Beer will be available for $5.00 (cash only) and 100% of the proceeds go to our Charity Benefactors, The Boys & Girls Club of Malibu. Tickets will be sold inside the Beer Garden.

The Malibu Half Marathon & 5K would like to remind you to “Please Drink Responsibly”.




AFTER PARTY


After your race, be sure to stick around to enjoy all the vendors, massages, food, music, the BEER GARDEN and just plain fun at the beach!!!!




INCLEMENT WEATHER


In the event of inclement weather such as high heat, lightning, tornadoes, hurricanes and the like the Malibu Half Marathon and 5k, and Malibu Race Series Association reserve the right to eliminate selected portions of the course, or cancel the event in order to ensure the safety of racers, volunteers and staff.

Weather can be unpredictable. Please come prepared for chilly morning temperatures and possible fog.




COURSE CLOSING TIME


All participants are expected to be able to complete the Half Marathon course in 4 hours, i.e. 18 minutes-per-mile. The time count begins after the start of the last wave of runners. Runners/Walkers who are unable to maintain a 18-minute pace, although encouraged to complete the race, will be asked to remain out of previously-closed traffic lanes and obey regular traffic laws. The Highway will be reopened to traffic on a “rolling basis” determined by that pace. The Finish Line will stay open for runners and spectators until 12:00 PM.
Aid stations, official finishing times, commemorative medals, and post-race refreshments will only be available to runners who maintain a 18 minutes-per-mile pace or below.




CAN I PUSH MY CHILD IN A JOGGER?


Strollers are allowed on the Half Marathon course ONLY. For the safety of everyone, we do kindly ask for all participants with strollers / joggers to place themselves at the end of the corral start.
