The 8th annual Strawberry Fields 5K and Triathlon will be taking place this weekend at Oxnard State Beach Park. The event begins on Saturday, July 16th, with a 5K run that starts at 9:00 A.M. On Sunday, July 17th, the triathlon will start at 7:00 A.M. and is expected to have close to 900 participants.
Personnel from the Oxnard Police Department will be handling traffic control along the run and bicycle courses during both of these events. The priority right of way will be given to the runners and bicyclists as these events are highly competitive.
Runners during both events will be running along Mandalay Beach Road, Sunset Lane and Ocean Drive. During the triathlon, the bicycle riders will be traveling on Harbor Boulevard, Gonzales Road, Fifth Street, Victoria Avenue and Channel Islands Boulevard. Traffic control personnel will be positioned at all of the intersections along the run and bike courses during both events.
During the triathlon on Sunday, the northbound lanes of Harbor Boulevard will be closed at Costa De Oro at approximately 6:30 A.M. and are expected to reopen at approximately 10:30 A.M. or as soon as possible. Fifth Street between Harbor Boulevard and Victoria Avenue will also be closed for vehicular traffic. These closures will provide added safety for the bicyclists and reduce the amount of traffic congestion surrounding Oxnard State Beach Park. The southbound lanes of Harbor Boulevard will remain open during the triathlon but drivers shall expect long delays near Oxnard State Beach Park as the bicyclists will be entering and exiting the park. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes including Victoria Avenue and Wooley Road to avoid these road closures and delays.
If you live in the area of these events, we apologize for any inconvenience.
For any questions related to these events or road closures, please contact Senior Officer Brian Woolley at (805) 385-7749 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
