Parking & Directions


The Start / Finish Line are both located at Zuma Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Malibu, CA. The last two parking lots at the very end from the entrance are reserved for the Malibu Expo & Race (map & directions).


You can pre-purchase Zuma Beach parking tickets at the Malibu Expo & Packet Pick-up at the Run Malibu Store.


More than 2000 parking spaces are available at the Zuma Beach Parking in a chain of 12 parking lots along the beachfront. Access to all the parking lots is via the entrance gates off Pacific Coast Highway at the south end of the beach. The last parking two lots are reserved for the Malibu Race. There is no parking on Hwy 1 on race day. Lots are filled starting from the lot adjacent to the Start / Finish line up to the one by the entrance located about 1 mile away.

On Saturday from 4:00 AM to 10:00 AM and on Sunday from 4:00 AM to 12:00 PM, due to the race road closure, DO NOT make a turn from PCH towards the main gate. Enter only from Busch Dr and use the under-passage.


Parking at Zuma Beach and Point Dume is $5 and is cash only. There will be a limited supply of parking tickets for pre-purchase at the expo & packet pickup. Display your parking ticket on your vehicle dashboard at all times to avoid a $63 parking citation.

If you're planning to get dropped off or ride with Uber or Lyft, Do NOT stop along the southbound shoulder of PCH or enter the Zuma Beach parking or you'll be charged regardless of the length of your stay inside of the parking lot. Plan to be dropped off at the Trancas Shopping center located between Trancas Canyon Rd and PCH (where Vintage Grocers is located). We recommend using the crosswalk to reach the start line.
