Flat, Fast, Festive and We Give Back!
It’s more than just a Half Marathon, it’s a friends and family event!
Opportunities for the whole family include: Half Marathon, 2-person Half Marathon Relay, 5K Run/Walk, 1K Kids Fun Run, Diaper Dash, Costume Contest, Charity Challenge, Neighborhood Challenge, Finish Line Festival & Holiday Marketplace, Toy Drive (3,000+ toys collected in 2018) and a Scholarship Program where scholarships are awarded.
The Santa to the Sea Finish Line Festival & Vendor Expo at Channel Islands Harbor is where it all comes together for thousands of race participants, spectators, supporters and community members. Crowds congregate early to visit vendors and get in position to cheer the runners, beginning with the 5K and 1K finishers, followed by the half marathoners from around 9:00 am to noon.
What started in 2003 as a toy drive to celebrate the relocation of the world’s largest Santa Claus from Carpinteria to Oxnard has grown into a robust running event, toy drive, community fundraiser, and holiday season celebration.
