Course & Course Map

In 2015, the 38th Annual Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run introduced a new, fun, fast course.  As in previous years, the race start is adjacent to Santa Monica Beach on Barnard Way near the intersection of Ocean Park Blvd. This year, the festivities will again have the legendary Christmas Run 5k and 10k running south from Santa Monica, down the world famous Venice Boardwalk, meandering onto the scenic streets of Venice and finishing at the iconic Venice Pavilion.

So, bring the whole family and all your friends to Santa Monica on December 10, 2016 and enjoy all the fun and festivities at the start area, along the course and at the Venice Pavilion finish line.
