New Event: Run to Surf Adventure Challenge

Run to Surf Adventure ChallengeThe Semana Nautica Association is pleased to announce a new event joining our festival schedule in 2017. The second annual Run to Surf Adventure Challenge will be taking place at Leadbetter Beach Park on Saturday, July 8.

Over 500 participants turned out last year for the event’s inaugural competition.

Run to Surf takes place on the scenic coast of Santa Barbara and includes a 5k run, a 1/2 mile surf paddle (on a surfboard), and a extensive beach challenge course. The triathlon format is designed to be completed by either teams of 3 (each member does one leg) or, if you’re feeling extra saucy, by an individual, which is affectionately called BEAST mode by the organizers.

The event starts and finishes at Leadbetter Beach, and the finish line greets you with an amazing fiesta that includes a beer garden, food trucks, the incredible Leadbetter Beach setting, and music!

The 5k run includes one moderate hill and a few curves. Then it’s the paddle course – a secure 1/2 mile paddle out into the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and finishing back on the beach.  The final leg of the competition consists of a fun but challenging beach obstacle course designed to challenge everything you’ve got.

You will not want to miss the 2nd Annual Run to Surf event as it’s sure to be epic!
