Event description

Description

Race Format
Whether you’re a longtime racer or first-time runner, the Santa Maria Fitness Series is for you. We have a 5K (3.1 miles), a 10K (6.2 miles) and a Kids Dash. It’s a family-friendly event and everyone is welcome! A portion of the net proceeds from the series benefits the Santa Maria Valley YMCA.

Get in the Best Shape of your Life
No matter where you are at fitness-wise, we can all improve. That’s why we have created this low-cost, supportive and fun race series. Many people have found that they need a goal to look forward to in order to stay motivated. We hold quarterly events so that you can compare your times from race to race and see your improvement. Come run with us!


Please arrive by 8:00am. The opening ceremony will be from 8:15 to 8:45am. The Kids Dash will be held at 8:45am. The 5K will start at 9am (sharp). The 10K will start at 9:30am (sharp).


FAQs

Do you have a website?
Yes. You can find it here.

What is included in my registration?

Since the Santa Maria Fitness Series will be held quarterly, we have decided to forego t-shirts and medals. Instead we have lowered the price and passed the savings onto you. Also, 40% of the net proceeds of your registration goes to the Santa Maria Valley YMCA to directly benefit their kid’s fitness programs. So, by attending this event, you are supporting childhood fitness in Santa Maria and the surrounding area.

What can I bring into the event?
If you are coming by yourself or if everyone in your party will be participating, we recommend that you bring a gym bag to store anything you won't be using during the race. Note: there will be overlap between the 5K and the 10K. Make sure you bring a hat and sunscreen.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We recommend that you bring your phone with a copy of the registration confirmation left in your inbox.

Do you offer postponements?
Yes! If you contact the Race Director before race day, we will create a discount code (within 5 business days) which you can use to purchase a ticket for a future race. The discount will be for 100% of the cost so you won’t have to pay anything even if the price goes up. You will have to use this discount within 12 months or it will expire. If you find you have a conflict, just contact the Race Director using the form on the website!

Is my registration fee or ticket transferable?
If you can’t attend, we recommend that you ask for a postponement. See answer above.

Is it OK if the name on my ticket or registration doesn’t match the person who attends?
If you can’t attend, we recommend that you ask for a postponement. See answer above.

If you have any other questions or concerns please contact us and we will get back to you ASAP!
