Orchard 2 Ocean

NEW LOCATION! Carpinteria Middle School

Saturday, March 14, 2020

Guest Bartending

Corktree Cellars

August 2020

Our annual Orchard 2 Ocean (O2O) 5K, 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run is a wonderful family friendly event! It is for both elite and casual runners/walkers and provides much needed funds for Carpinteria Education Foundation.

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

The school year is about to start, so what better way to kick it off than a Back to School celebration? Come on out and support Carpinteria Education Foundation.

Guest bartenders include our our amazing board members: President Casey Balch, Vice President Jessica Isaac, Sarah Smith & Nikki Yamaoka, along with Beth Cox, one of our long time supporters.
