Santa Barbara Veterans Run Still Scheduled, But Reduced by Half

The Santa Barbara Veterans Day Marathon & Half Marathon announced Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015, that its Marathon and Marathon Relay have been canceled. These two events will be consolidated into the Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay Saturday, November 7, 2015.

“It is with deep regret that we have canceled our Marathon and Marathon Relay due to race production costs and lower than expected entrants,” said race director Rusty Snow. “Our popular half marathon, on its beautiful new course starting at UC Santa Barbara, will continue to be run on Saturday, Nov. 7. We are also launching a half marathon relay with legs ranging from 2 to 5 miles also beginning at UC Santa Barbara.”

Marathon and marathon relay registrants will have the following options:

» Transfer registration to the Half Marathon or Half Marathon Relay (Nov. 7, 2015).

» Defer race registration to the 2016 Half Marathon (Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016).

» Request a full refund of event registration.

Marathon and Marathon Relay registrants can make their submission by Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015 on the following pages:

» Marathon

» Marathon Relay

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

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.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
