Formerly the Ojai Marathon, more information about the race can be found here--

If you're running, check in. I'm looking to carpool and share a room.
Here's the hotel: http://www.phhsuites.com/
1/2 room rate is $44.
I'm probably going to cook stakes on the beach the night before the marathon And, I'd be happy to add food for the people who carpool with me...anyone who's heard about the Yosemite Trail Running event knows that this is a generous offer. Paul, who's run over 50 marathons and is coaching me to great effect, recommends stake rather than pasta the night before a marathon.
The up/down side is that I'm dropping Paul off at San Francisco Airport at 4:30am on 5/25 so I'll be ready to leave San Francisco at 5am. Which/ if you've gotten your race information you will understand is a good time to start adjusting your body too for the 6am start (and the 4am shuttle to the start). But I could hang out for an hour or meet someone in the East Bay if they want to carpool.
I drive a Toyota Prius.
