In 1983, a few local runners organized the State Street Mile for the thrill of running downhill through Santa Barbara’s scenic downtown corridor. 

Through the years, The State Street Mile has evolved into a unique community and running event. Everyone, including dogs, who runs, jogs, or walks is welcome.

The race starts at Pedregosa & State Streets and ends at State & De La Guerra Streets.

The event raises funds for the county’s Crime Victim Emergency Fund. Every dollar of entry fee translates into essential help.
