Heroes Challenge: Running for Our Youth

Thu April 1 - Mon May 31 Santa Barbara, CA 93190 US

Don't just count the miles. Make the miles count.

The Police Activities League's Heroes Challenge: Running for Our Youth is Santa Barbara's newest virtual event! This month long virtual race challenges all participants to achieve "Hero" status! As a virtual race, the "Heroes Challenge" gives each participant to meet their run goals at their own pace and have the unique ability to split their runtime across the entire month if need be.

The Heroes Challenge is a virtual race that benefits local youth by funding academic, recreational and community service focused programming.

The Santa Barbara Police Activities League (PAL) strives to build positive mentoring relationships between teens, the police department, and members of the community through educational, athletic, and leadership development programs.
