USATF - America's Running Routes - Map It (http://www.usatf.org/routes/map/) has a measuring tool. Your mark is about 4.4 miles from the runway. If that's a correct plot they should have been at 1300' AGL and not 400'.

From what our company pilot who witnessed it said, that should be about right. she was on a boat in the marina by coyote point and she thought it was going to hit the point on the go around.
