The Santa to the Sea ‘Neighborhood Challenge’
Our great neighborhoods and schools along the race route compete for cash prizes, while celebrating the runners with festive music, Holiday decorations, and cheerleaders. At Santa to the Sea, we involve, engage and give back to our communities. Five neighborhoods along our route, and their schools, are chosen to compete by creating a festival type celebration in their “hood”, to cheer and entertain the runners. In return, our runners get to experience the great people from the City of Oxnard, and the surrounding neighborhoods. We will be sending an online survey to all of our runners immediately after the race, asking which neighborhood impressed them the most. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three neighborhoods and accompanying schools. 1st place= $2,500 2nd place= $1,500 3rd place= $1000 Runner up= $500 Runner up= $500 Be creative, recruit a band, make a call to action in your neighborhood, wear costumes, beat on pots and pans, etc. Do anything to impress our runners. Most of all, have fun and kick off your Holiday Season on Sunday December 14, 2014.
