The 24th annual running of the Santa Barbara Thanksgiving Day 4-Miler is Thursday, Nov. 24. Come out and enjoy the pre-Thanksgiving dinner festivities featuring a unique course that starts along Hollister Avenue heading to Turnpike Road. There's a stretch along the bike path before winding through neighborhood streets to the finish at Thunderbird Park (on Walnut Avenue - just off Hollister Avenue).
Online registration closes at 6:00am on Thanksgiving Day (or once we reach capacity). Race day packet pickup is Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 24, 7:15am - 8:45am, at Thunderbird Park in Goleta. Please arrive early to avoid a last minute scramble. There will be late registration at the Park prior to the event, but you must get there before 8:30am.
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 9:05am so arrive early to pick up bib number, visit friends and be ready to go at 9:05am.
We hope you have fun and ENJOY the race!
