EVENT OVERVIEW This festive, Easter-themed beach run was established in 1967 by the City of Daytona Beach. The race was first held on Easter Sunday to provide an activity for visiting college students and is now the oldest consecutive footrace in the State of Florida.
Participants will enjoy a scenic run on the World’s Most Famous Beach while traveling out and back for the 4-mile race, 2-mile fun run or health walk. Kids are also welcome to participate in the 1/4-mile race, 100 and 50-yard dash.
Following the race, registered participants head over to title sponsor, Bubba Gump Shrimp, Co. for their world-renown shrimp and grits. Sponsors and vendors will also have tons of treats and information to share throughout the event.
The Easter Beach Run is professionally chip-timed by the 5K Race Director.
