Neighborhood Challenge

Our great neighborhoods and schools along the race route can 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 our runners immediately after the race, asking which neighborhood impressed them the most. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top five neighborhoods and accompanying schools.
1st Place $2000
2nd Place $1500
3rd Place $1000
4th Place $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.
