SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The State Street Mile, to be held in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara on Sunday, June 7, has a new title sponsor, HOKA ONE ONE, a revolutionary shoe brand that has expanded beyond the ultra and trail running world to the mainstream running market.

“We welcome and thank HOKA ONE ONE as our title sponsor, and together, we will make our 16th edition our best event yet!” said race director Megan Rheinschild. “On June 7, we look forward to seeing everybody, humans as well as dogs, enjoying the HOKA ONE ONE State Street Mile.”

Race day kicks off at 8:00am with seven age group categories (14 & under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-plus) followed by the popular Family Fun Mile, the Elite Miles and capped off with the not to be missed, tail wagging fun, Dog Mile, the unofficial world championship.

An event record guaranteed prize purse of $5700 will be awarded (Open and Masters 40-plus age-graded) plus $1000 for Open course records (3:49 – men and 4:33 – women). The event is again part of the local SBAA Grand Prix and Junior Grand Prix Series.
