ZEEBLU THANKSGIVING 5k & FAMILY FUN RUN

ZeeBlu's Thanksgiving 5K is a Santa Barbara race for Santa Barbara. With over 1,000 charities and non-profits in our area, each of us has benefitted from their presence in one way or another. ZeeBlu believes in giving back to the community that supports us, which is why our event donates 100% of our proceeds directly to local organizations. Can you image a better way to give thanks than to admire Santa Barbara's coast as you race for a local cause?

    That was a fun race! Beautiful setting (can't beat the ocean view!), great refreshments before and after the race, and an overall fun atmosphere!
  • Josh Isaac

    I had a ton of fun at ZeeBlu's 5k race this year. There were enough people that it was a fun competitive race, but not too crowded. The race was well marked and had a refreshment table at the halfway point, as well as bananas and muffins at the finish. And I got a t-shirt! Great race!
  • Teresa Segovia

    The Zeeblu Thanksgiving 5k was super fun! Just the right amount of organization, although if I would have been paying attention for the start I might have given you a run for your money!! Thanks, Chad Ratliffe for a great morning!
