About our Courses:

 We embrace an open-course philosophy, inviting a vibrant tapestry of fellow runners, walkers, and enthusiasts to share the day's experience with you. Safety is paramount, and we kindly request all runners to remain on the designated pedestrian side of the beach path. The course elegantly follows the beach path without deviation, assuring you a seamless journey. We have thoughtfully placed two water stations on the course, providing water and Gatorade.

Course Specifics:

 The 5K and 10K races share the same course. The turnaround is located at mile 1.55, marked with a runner turn sign, a large orange flag, and chalk.. The 5K race follows a single out-and-back lap, while the 10K race involves two out-and-back laps.


How are our races timed? 

All events are gun-timed. We start the clock when the horn sounds and record your time as you cross the finish line. Your bib must be worn on the front of your body at all times.

What you get: 

Every participant, without exception, will proudly claim a finisher's medal, a symbol of your triumph etched in metal. As you cross that finish line, a treasure trove of finish-line goodies will be yours to savor, a delightful celebration of your accomplishment. 

Capture the moment forever with our gift of free downloadable race photos, typically posted within 24 hours of the event. Curious about your performance? Fear not, as race results will be meticulously tabulated and promptly posted on our website within 12 hours of the race's conclusion.
