Come out and enjoy the 23rd annual running of the original Santa Barbara Thanksgiving Day 4-Miler. The flat and fast course stands apart from many of the local run courses with a start along Hollister Avenue to Turnpike leading to a stretch along the bike path and then winding through neighborhood streets to the finish at Thunderbird Park (on Walnut Avenue - just off Hollister Avenue).
Online REGISTRATION will close at 6:00 AM on Thanksgiving Day, or once we reach capacity. Packet Pickup is Thursday morning, Nov. 25, 7:15am - 8:45am at Thunderbird Park in Goleta. Arrive at the Park early to get your packet and Bib Number assignment. We are allowing late-registration at the Park prior to the event, but you must get there before 8:30 AM.
Your BIB number has a RFID Tag attached to it. DO NOT BEND or damage this tag else it might not read when you cross the Finish Line. Make sure you wear your BIB number facing the front so it is easily visible to the Photographers, Race Timers, and the timing equipment.
Race starts at 9:05 AM, but get there before 8:30 AM (8:00 is better!) to get your packet, get acclimated, and say HI to all your friends!
We hope you have fun and ENJOY the race!
