Team Challenge

You, my friend, are what we endearingly call a BEAST. We are impressed and awed by anyone who would attempt to do this whole course alone.

YOU will conquer the 5k run. YOU will master the .5 mile paddle. YOU will rock the beach obstacle. YOU ARE A BEAST!

This stunning course capitalizes on all of the natural beauty Santa Barbara has to offer - coastline, beaches, ocean. Enjoy some nifty scenery while getting your sweat on.

This is where we do things a little different from most 3-sport challenges. We are going to put you in the ocean, on your belly, on a conventional surfboard. You read that right - conventional surf board, no SUP or other paddleboards here! Any normal surfboard will be accepted and we will have boards to rent should you need one.

This paddle is a challenge, but you know you're up for it - plus what's a little paddle when there's a fiesta at the end?!

obstacle course


Run to Surf is the perfect event to pair up with some buddies and show off what you've got. Whether you want to put together a corporate team and compete against your colleagues and rivals or whether you and some friends join up, this event is sure to be a blast for you all.

Each team member will take on one leg of the course, but who will it be?! Run. Surf. Crawl. Beer Garden. Yup, sounds good.


Oh it's going to be interesting. We've got an awesome beach obstacle designed for you here. In fact, we teamed up with local fitness heroes Killer B to make sure this obstacle course is going to be fun AND fit.

We're not telling you what it's going to be. Just know that you're gonna get sandy!

the course

This 5k run takes you slightly uphill from Leadbetter beach and along the lower Mesa neighborhood. Then you'll wind back down and it's time for the paddle. And get this - ocean view the whole way. Now that's a nice way to run.
