About Santa To The Sea

 The Santa to the Sea Half Marathon and 5k, is based in the coastal community of Oxnard, CA., and just 40 minutes north of Los Angeles. The Half Marathon and 2 Person Relay starts at the legendary Santa Claus statue, located along the 101 freeway in Nyeland Acres, just outside of Oxnard. The runners follow a flat and fast, USATF certified course, running along the fra­grant strawberry fields, through the areas of his­toric Oxnard decorated for the Hol­i­days, to the beach, and finishing at Channel Islands Harbor and our EXPO Village. Our cer­ti­fied looped 5k course, per­fect for both experienced run­ners and those new to the sport, starts and fin­ishes at the Marine Emporium Landing EXPO Village in the Channel Islands Harbor. Since 2012, we have included a supervised 1K Kid’s Run to the annual event. The Kid’s Run takes place in the EXPO Village, and allows the kids to safely finish, on the race course, and in the Finish Chute.

Our Mission

We want to provide all participants with a fun, healthy and safe running event, while supporting and showcasing our local communities. Santa to the Sea is a nonprofit event ( tax ID 26–3529617) that helps collect Christmas gifts and toys for underprivileged children in Ven­tura County. Additionally, working with Oxnard College and the Gene Haas Foundation, Santa to the Sea provides scholarships to local high school seniors, as well as those adults continuing their education. With your help in 2013, we were able to give away thousands of gifts and toys, as well as awarding 75 deserving students a $500 scholarship for their fall 2014 semester at Oxnard Col­lege. This year, we hope to do even more. We thank you for running with us, and your helping to make our event a huge success!
