Congratulations Malibu Marathon,
Half and SUPathlon Finishers!

Malibu Marathon FinisherThank you for choosing the Race to Paradise for your 13.1/26.2 mile adventure. A record number of athletes came together to watch the sun rise with the dolphins and pound the pavement from Camarillo to Malibu. The Pacific Coast Highway has never seen so many fierce athletes dedicated to accomplishing their goals to the finish line. We loved seeing our legacy runners and enjoyed meeting new friends from NYC to Australia and every place in between. The great Pacific misses you already. Come back for more next November!
