The 2 Per­son Relay

Start time is 7:30 am. Registration for the Relay: Each runner can register individually. The Team Captain registers first and creates a team when prompted to do so. (Don’t forget to give your team a creative name). The second runner then registers and joins the team created by the captain. Teams are made up of 2 run­ners who will each run 6.55 miles of the half marathon course. Find­ team mem­bers within your office, school, run­ning club, family or friends. 


Along the course you will be encour­aged and sup­ported by local spec­ta­tors, vol­un­teers, and cheer-squads. You’ll be moti­vated musi­cally by the many bands we have lined up along the race. This point to point course starts at the his­toric Santa Claus off of the 101 free­way, runs through Oxnard’s famous straw­berry fields, then through down­town Oxnard and beau­ti­ful Plaza Park. It is at this point your partner will be waiting for you for the handoff.  Next will be his­toric Candy Cane Lane, where the homes are dec­o­rated for the hol­i­days. Finally, you’re off to the Pacific Ocean, and fin­ish­ing at the Marine Empo­rium Land­ing in the Chan­nel Islands Harbor.

Toy Drive: A Santa To The Sea Tradition

All runners are asked to bring an UNWRAPPED toy or gift of at least $10 in value to the event..

Our Half Marathoners and Relay runners can drop off their toy at the Starting Line Santa Statue. Our 5K runners can drop off their toy at the Finish Line/EXPO, in the Marine Emporium Landing, before the race begins.

What Kind of Toy/Gift to Bring: In addition to toys, we have many infants (ages 0–6 months) that need sleepers and clothing. We also have many older children who need gifts as well, so please remember to bring something for them. For teen girls…clothing, makeup, curling irons, jewelry, etc. are great gifts. For teen boys…gift cards to food places, Target, Walmart, etc. are perfect for them.


The Half Marathon and 2 Person Relay share the same race route, relay runners will exchange their bib at the mid-way point in Plaza Park, Downtown Oxnard.
