Review of Santa To The Sea Half Marathon by

Posted by: on March, 25 2013

December 2012 was my 3rd year running Santa to the Sea and it remains one of the highlights of the year in my racing calendar. It’s simply the best, most well organized local race I’ve done.
Unlike some other big races (Disneyland 1/2 Marathon) the fees are reflected in what you actually get, and the organizers add awesome new additions every year without making you break the bank.
This past year they added the “neighborhood challenge” and for the most part the participating neighborhoods went all out. This being the first year I’m anticipating that the 2013 race will have even more neighborhoods and more of a competition.
The finish line festival is great, constant shuttles going back to the Govt. Center and just an all around great race.
Can’t wait for 2013’s race!!
