About our courses:

 Our courses are not closed, which means that there are often other runners, walkers, and others enjoying the day along with you. Safety is must and all runners must stay on the pedestrian side of the beach path. The course never goes off the beach path. Courses are well marked with two water stations and restrooms along the way. This is an out-and-back course meaning you will begin and finish in the same location. 

The 5k, and 10K will all run the same course. The turnaround is located at mile 1.55 marked with a runner turn sign, large orange flag, chalk, and small blue and orange flags. 

5k will run 1 out and back lap

10k will run two out-and-back laps


The Half Marathon Runners will run 3 out and back laps.

The half marathon turn is located at mile 2.19 and marked with a large blue flag, runner turn sign, chalk, and small blue and orange survey flags.





What you get:

All participants will receive a finisher medal, finish line goodies, and free downloadable race photos. Race results will be posted on our website within 10 hours of the completion of the race.
