Santa Barbara and the adjoining Santa Ynez Valley offer the ideal destination running experience. Held in on Mother’s Day weekend in May, it’s the perfect time to explore sunny Santa Barbara with all its recreational, wine and culinary options. You’ll LOVE this scenic course that starts in downtown Santa Ynez and runs through the town of Los Olivos, then into Ballard Canyon before finishing in the Danish-inspired town of Solvang. Bring your friends and family and celebrate at the post-race Wine & Music Festival and the 10th Anniversary of the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon! Two-person relay also offered.
