SANTA BARBARA, Calif.  - The Select Staffing Santa Barbara Veterans Day Marathon & Half has announced a new Elite Rehab Team Competition inviting military teams of five and corporate or open teams of three to “leave no person behind”. In a unique format amongst road races, teams will have to finish no more than 13.1 seconds apart from each other in the Half Marathon and 26.2 seconds apart from each other in the Marathon.

The first 100 teams to register will enjoy 15% off team registration. Teams may use code TEAM100 to receive the discount at checkout.

“Whether it is raising money for their favorite charity or running alongside their friends and family en route to crossing the finish line with their hands held high, many runners participate to not only get fit, but to do something greater than themselves,” commented race director Rusty Snow. “We look forward to seeing our military, corporate and open teams truly working together in completing their collective journeys from the orchards of Goleta to the beautiful waterfront finish in downtown Santa Barbara.”

At the 6th event edition, teams will travel across Santa Barbara’s south county, enjoying a new waterfront finish line at Leadbetter Beach. In partnership with the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation the Veterans Final Mile will once again provide an inspirational boost to the finishers completing their 13.1 and 26.2 mile journeys.

Participants are encouraged to register before the next price increase on Saturday, May 31.
