Team Information:

We would love for the team spirit to continue this year, and to honor the legacy of those that we know that have been affected by cancer.

There is no extra cost to start a team! Simply choose a team name, and be sure that all your team members reference that team name while registering!

We will be offering two great team contests this year!

1) Team Spirit Award: We will be awarding the team with the most team spirit with a special prize. Some fun ways to show your team spirit are: Create a Team Shirt in Honor/Memory of those you are running or walking for, Pick a Team Color or Theme to wear to show team unity, and/or Create a Team Banner to Honor/Remember those that you run/walk for. The possibilities are endless, and we welcome your creativity!

2) Most Participants on a Team Award: We will be awarding the team with the most participants with a special prize. Recruit as many friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, etc. to build your team!

*We will also have prizes for our Top 3 Fundraisers! Please join us this year in helping raise much needed funds for Cancer Hope Foundation. All donations are tax-deductible.

Join in the fun & get creative.

Parking Information:

We recommend that runners park in the Free City of Ventura parking lot on Santa Clara St between California St and Chestnut. You will then walk straight down California St towards the ocean. The Start/Finish location is on the Promenade between Aloha Steakhouse and Crowne Plaza.

There is also paid parking directly off Harbor Blvd. just East of Crowne Plaza as well as under the pier. If you eat at one of the Promenade restaurants (Aloha Steakhouse. C-Street Cafe, Eric Ericssons) after the race you can get parking validated for free. Otherwise they charge $2/hour or $8/day per vehicle at the time of exit.

Our energies are currently concentrated on Camp Keepsake, a program which offers a cost-free camp retreat for adult cancer patients/survivors, their children and friends. Camp Keepsake provides support in an energetic and fun atmosphere.
