The Jolliest (Virtual) Christmas Run

Joy to the world, the Santa Monica-Venice Christmas run is back in 2022 for a virtual holiday run! Register for a holly jolly good time running a 5K or 10K around your town – because nothing says Christmas like dashing through your streets? Our elves at the North Pole will send your swag straight to your front door so your race day can be merry and bright! Gather your crew and jingle all the way!

Packets will begin to ship in December. Register by December 4th to guarantee your race packet by Christmas.


No need to add new running gear to your list to Santa – because we’ve got it! Register and get a holiday quarter zip pullover and the merriest finishers medal to keep you in the holiday spirit (you can even use it to decorate your tree).

Virtual in 2022, Live in 2023!

You better watch out! While our 2022 event is virtual, The Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run is coming back to town in December 2023! Mark your calendars to celebrate the return of in-person racing on the course you have known and loved for the last 40+ years. This year’s virtual runners will also receive “sneak peek” early access to registration for 2023.
