Santa Barbara Athletic Association to Kick Off New Year With Annual Resolution Run 5K, 10K

The Santa Barbara Athletic Association (SBAA) will offer a great way to start the New Year with an oceanfront 5K and 10K run or walk at beautiful Leadbetter Beach.

Founded in 1979, the SBAA Resolution Run presented by Elite Performance Rehabilitation Center is set for Friday Jan. 1, 2016, with the 5K starting at 9 a.m., followed by the 10K at 9:45 a.m.

“Our Resolution Run has become an annual tradition for runners, friends and family from throughout the Central Coast to get the New Year off and running with some runners also doing The Double, both the 5K and 10K!,” said SBAA Board President Tamara Berndt.

The 5K and 10K courses run East out-and-back along the Cabrillo bike path. The 10K race continues past the start and 5K finish line, up Leadbetter Hill to Shoreline Park, and then runners will turn around and return back down the same route to the finish and the post-event party.

Runners will receive a special Resolution Run t-shirt, snacks and drinks on race day, and participants 17 and under have free entry. Packet pickup or late registration opens at 8 a.m. Jan. 1 at Leadbetter Beach.

The Resolution Run 5K is also the inaugural  SBAA Grand Prix event for 2016. The Grand Prix is a fun series of events for fellow runners to compete against one another throughout the year in Santa Barbara’s best races.

Register for the 5K, 10K or The Double (5K and 10K) online here.

Since 2009, more than $124,000 has been donated to our community. Visit for more information or to become a member.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
