Santa to the Sea Events

Flat, Fast, Festive and We Give Back!

The Half Marathon and 2-Per­son Relay starts at the leg­endary Santa Claus statue.

You’ll run along the 101 free­way in Nye­land Acres, near Oxnard. The run­ners fol­low a flat and fast course, along the fra­grant straw­berry fields, through Downtown Oxnard and the Henry T. Oxnard Historic District dec­o­rated for the hol­i­days, to the beach, and fin­ish at Chan­nel Islands Har­bor.

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.

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 2017) and a Scholarship Program where 80 scholarships were awarded in 2016.

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.
