The State Street Mile will be a virtual race this year due to the coronavirus pandemic as announced in a press release from the Santa Barbara District Attorney's office.

The 21st race will take place virtually from June 10 to June 21.

The statement said the fee is $15 per person for the ranked mile and dog mile. There is a $5 fee per person for the family mile.

The annual celebration benefits the Santa Barbara District Attorney's Victim-Witness Assistance Program's Crime Victim Emergency Fund, according to the release.

"We encourage every person, family and dog who runs, jogs or walks to participate in their safe virtual State Street Mile, an opportunity to have fun and get outside,” Race Director Megan Rheinschild said in the release. “Now more than ever, victims of crime desperately need financial assistance.”

Registration opens June 10 on their website.
