Membership not only provides you with some great discounts such as 10% off at the Santa Barbara Running Company (previously known as "Santa Barbara Athletic Association") and a stainless steel pint glass, it also helps build a strong and vibrant running community. The SBRA provides critical support to the Club West Junior High School Cross Country Program, Special Olympics of Santa Barbara Track and Field athletes and all local high school cross country and track programs. Additionally, we celebrate our community’s runners through the year-long Grand Prix Competition, annual banquet and numerous social events. Your SBRA membership will automatically enroll you in the Grand Prix Competition or, for those members under 18, the Junior Grand Prix Competition. Approximately 10 local races per year with your race results matched up against other SBRA members in your age group and the top three recognized at our annual banquet in December!
