The Courses

The Santa Barbara Half Marathon and SB Independent 5K course highlight two world-renowned roads on the American Riviera – Cabrillo Blvd & State Street!
Participants will start along Santa Barbara’s spectacular Cabrillo Blvd on the waterfront  before winding through downtown and around local landmarks Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden and Kid’s World at Alameda Park. To cap off the journey, you’ll descend down State Street for a one-of-a-kind fast Half Marathon and 5K finish.
With clear air & closed roads, whether you’re looking for your next Strava segment trophy or simply enjoying a good sweat, you’ve come to the best in the west.
