Santa to the Sea @ 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.

San Diego Holiday Half @ Hotel Karlan
Dec 15 all-day

The San Diego Holiday Half Marathon is a fast 13.1 mile course that starts on Penasquitos Drive in front of the Hotel Karlan (formerly, the Doubletree Golf Resort) then travels SW along Carmel Mountain Rd (your only ‘real’ hill at mile 1.5), along the 56 bike path and finishes at the beautiful Torrey Pines State Beach (pictured above!). The race includes a 711-foot net elevation drop along the rolling downhill bike path, which also makes it a personal best candidate. This popular winter half has been a sell out event every year and sure to sell out for 201. Get your end of the year PR!!!
