Course Map & Parking Information


We’re celebrating our 41st anniversary of the Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run in 2018. Join us for two great races, the popular costume contests and the Wonderful Halos Kids Fun Run. We greatly appreciate the support of the local running community after the postponement of our 2017 40th anniversary race.

The race start is adjacent to Santa Monica Beach on Barnard Way near the intersection of Ocean Park Blvd. The Christmas Run 5K and 10K will run south from Santa Monica, down the world famous Venice Boardwalk, meander onto the scenic streets of Venice and finish at Windward Plaza, home to the iconic Venice Pavilion. Join us for the finish line festival with costume contests, music, vendors, holiday inflatables and more.
 Bring the whole family and celebrate the holidays with your running friends.
