The 25th Annual Orchard 2 Ocean 5K, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run – March 18, 2017 AT 8:00 AM

The 25th Annual Orchard to Ocean (O2O) 5k, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run will take place March 18th, 2017. It is an event for both elite and casual runners. The O2O takes place each spring, inspiring the Carpinteria Unified School District families, administrators and community members to run for support of the schools. With over 250 runners each year, the fundraiser provides well-needed funds to the district Parent Groups. Net proceeds are equitably distributed to each school site based upon student population.

Each parent group volunteers their time to help plan and organize sections of the event. Providing much-needed volunteers for the food venue, the Course Marshalls and the race registration staff.

The Orchard 2 Ocean has become a favorite among Santa Barbara County and Ventura County runners, with its delicious after-race food and beautiful course. The coastal view course runs along the Carpinteria State Park Campground, along the Carpinteria Bluffs, returning through the beautiful Concha Loma Community. A fast course, usually providing many PRs for the competitive runner!

Thank you to our generous Orchard 2 Ocean sponsors. Your support is appreciated!!
