5 K


The Santa to the Sea 5K, is a flat, fast and festive course. Many runners have established their personal record here, and continue to return. The 5K is also a great race for beginners. We see more first-timers every year, many of whom return to run the Half Marathon in following years. Additionally, it’s a perfect race for families of all ages to run together and celebrate a great accomplishment.

**The 5K Course is an "Open" course, please be aware of cars crossing at anytime and obey all Oxnard PD/STTS Staff/Volunteer and Course Marshal instructions.

The 5K STARTS and FINISHES at Marine Emporium Landing (3600 S. Harbor Blvd., Oxnard CA 93035) in Channel Islands Harbor. The race course goes along Sunset Lane to Oxnard Beach Park then to turnaround Point, where runners head back to cheering crowds at the Finish Line.

*Course is subject to change without notice
