Santa Barbara

Welcome to the American Riviera

Local ties run deep in Santa Barbara with current residents and former UCSB Gauchos on the Run Local staff. It’s also home to our newest event, the Santa Barbara Half Marathon! 

While Santa Barbara checks in at a mere 100,000 people or so, its international appeal has made it a hub for work and play – our two favorite things, which often overlap. The region’s trails have also attracted some of the world’s best trail runners, including HOKA ONE ONE athlete, Dani Moreno, who shares her story on our Run Local Pod.
