The idea behind the event is to get fun and hard weeknight workout in and then socialize after with friends and family while raising money for the Buena High School cross country program. Over the last two years over $14,000 was raised for Buena High XC.


The 5K (3.1 miles) will start at 6:15pm.

The Free Kids Run (~3/4ths of a mile) will start at 6:00pm.

All 10 weeks will take place on the Ventura Promenade in front of Aloha Steakhouse.


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.
