Starting Line Location?
    Freedom Park is located at 515 Eubanks Drive in Camarillo, CA 90310. its located right next to the Camarillo Air Port.   From the 101 freeway take the Las Posas exit and head towards the beach (south) to Pleasant Valley road.  turn right on Pleasant Valley to Eubanks and turn right on Eubanks.  Turn left on Aviation dr and follow the signs for parking in the large parking lot.  If the main parking lot is full we will direct you to the overflow parking area. 


Where are the aid stations and Port a Potties going to be?  Aid Station map: click here

Parking? ... where do we park?
 
    
Follow the signs and the volunteers.  its the big dirt lot on the corner of Willis and Eubanks. We have two large parking lots that should hold everyone.  Come early and be patient.  There will be hundreds of people trying to get into the same place all at once. The main parking lot is at Eubanks and Willis rd.   Over flow parking is at the main picnic area adjacent to the expo area and starting line.  other overflow parking will be announced as needed.

The race is so close to the beach will we get offshore wind on race day? 
    
Maybe…. In January we usually have fairly mild cool days,  some times we can get rain but usually light and not for very long. 

  What parts of the course would be affected by an offshore breeze?
   Most likely the back part of the main loop ( leguna rd, Las Posas rd.)
 
 

 

I don’t  know the course can I just follow someone?

It is the athlete’s responsibility to know the entire race course BEFORE stepping onto the starting line.  There are interactive maps below this section.

 

This sign is for the FULL and Half marathon course only as you run along Aviation dr on the Airport property.  PAY ATTENTION  and do not turn at the 5k sign below in the next row.

Full marathon - Red numbers

Half marathon - Green numbers

5k run course: 
your course will be all on the airport property and your race bib numbers will be black.
 

Do I have to stop at each signal light?

No, all signals will be on red flashing and we will have police coverage at each intersection location. BUT please be cautious and mindful just in case you encounter a wayward car.  Let the car win!

Any special instructions?

At 5th street,  an active working railroad track and you might encounter a train coming by on race day.  If  you do have to wait for a train to pass we will have race personnel on hand to take your number down and credit you for the time you had to wait.  In the unlikely event that this happens you are looking about maybe 30 seconds
