The 5K

USATF_Sanctioned_Event_Logo8:00 a.m. start Our 5K, just like our Half Marathon, is a flat and fast, USATF cer­ti­fied 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, or the Relay, in fol­low­ing years.  Addi­tion­ally, it’s a per­fect race for fam­i­lies of all ages to run together and cel­e­brate a great accomplishment. The 5K STARTS and FINISHES at the Marine Empo­rium Land­ing.  The race course goes along beau­ti­ful Oxnard Beach Park to Rehab Point, where you turn around and head back to cheer­ing crowds at the Fin­ish Line. Impor­tant info … Park­ing for the 5K:  Park­ing for you is at the Marine Empo­rium Land­ing  Marine Empo­rium in the har­bor, before the race starts.  Please arrive early. Also:  There are no shut­tles between the Har­bor Fin­ish and the Half Marathon & Relay start. Fin­ish­ers Medals Each run­ner will receive a col­lec­table finisher’s medal when they cross the fin­ish line.

The 5K starts and fin­ishes at Marine Empo­rium Land­ing in Chan­nel Islands Har­bor. 3600 S. Har­bor Blvd., Oxnard Ca. 93035

Toy Drive

As part of the Santa to the Sea tra­di­tion, we ask that all run­ners please bring an UNWRAPPED toy of at least $10 in value to the event. There will be a toy drop area for all 5K run­ners, and 1K Kid’s Run­ners at the Fin­ish Line/EXPO in the Marine Empo­rium Landing.

Though this is a toy drive, we have many infants (ages 0–6 months) that need sleep­ers and cloth­ing. We have many older chil­dren who need gifts as well so please don’t for­get to get some­thing for them. For our teen girls…clothing, makeup, curl­ing irons, jew­elry, etc. are great gifts. For our teen boys…gift cards to food places, Tar­get, Wal-Mart, etc. are per­fect for them.
