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.

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.

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.
