Ahoy there, mateys! Welcome aboard the Pirates Plunder, where the only thing we pillage and loot is the course. Get ready to hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail on an adventure like no other.
Now, we know what you're thinking - "a pirate-themed? What could go wrong?" Well, we've got everything under control. We've got a team of trusty sailors (and some landlubbers) making sure the course is shipshape, and we've even got some parrots on standby to squawk encouragement.
But the real treasure of this race is the camaraderie and community spirit. We're all in this together, from the salty sea dogs to the timid first-timers. So grab your eye patch, your cutlass, and your running shoes, and let's show this course who's boss.
And after the race, stick around for the post-race celebration, where we'll be dishing out grub and grog, and telling tales of our epic journey. Who knows, you might even make some new swashbuckling friends.
So hoist the main sail, unfurl the jib, and set course for the Pirates Plunder - where the adventure never ends!

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.
