State Street Mile Course

This unique point-to-point Mile on Santa Barbara's famous State Street begins just a 1/4 mile from the Old Mission Santa Barbara on State and Pedregosa Streets. Runners will then descend just over 100 feet in elevation as they enter the historic, Spanish-inspired downtown, ending their journey on State and De La Guerra Streets.
