39th Annual Santa Monica to Venice Christmas Run

One of the Westside's longest running Christmas traditions and fundraisers, the 39th annual Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run returns to the Boardwalk on Saturday, December 10.

Starting in Santa Monica at Barnard Way, the run includes a 5k and a 10k run (or walk) down the beach path, with many participants and their babies (and fur babies) decked out in holiday style. From Santa hats to gingerbread-man costumes, the more the merrier, and there are prizes to be won for best costumes at the finish line. 

The Christmas Run ends at the Venice Pavilion (on Windward at the Venice Sign), and here you'll also find the 1k Kids Fun Run course, along with music and entertainment. 

Registration is $45 in advance or $50 on the weekend of the event. The Kids Fun Run is $20. It includes a long-sleeve running tee, bib with embedded chip timing, finisher's medal, on-course and recovery refreshments, and pre- and post-race entertainment
