30A 5K & 10 Mile---or 21.1K on 30A
On Saturday, October 8, 2016, we offer a 10 mile run along with the 30A 5K....and you can run BOTH! And....both gives you the 21.1K on 30A!
Kick off the morning with the 30A 5K at 7:00 am. Want more? At 8:00 am, hit the asphalt trails that parallel 30A for the 30A 10 Miler. 10 milers get a finishers medal. Those racing both...thus the 21.1K on 30A...receive a 21.1K race shirt and finisher's award. The race shirts for the 30A 5K & 10 Miler are cotton, gender specific shirts. Race awards are overall and age group.
Blue Mountain Beach 1/2 Marathon and 10K
On Sunday, October 9, 2016 at 7:00 am join us for The Blue Mountain Beach 1/2 Marathon & 10K! The 1/2 takes you up and down the "mountain" (remember: it is Florida....) of Blue Mountain Beach while the 1/2 and 10K wind through funky Grayton Beach and beautiful white sand dune lakes. There are finisher's awards for both the 10K and the 1/2 and awards for both races are overall and age group. Runners can choose either a cotton or technical race shirt and we plan for the shirts to be gender specific!
Run 2 Days!
Want more?? Run the 5K on Saturday and the 10K on Sunday and you'll be a Sand Dune Man/Woman and you'll receive an award designating you as such. More? You can run the 5K on Saturday and the 1/2 marathon on Sunday and be a Blue Mt Man/Woman and receive an award designating you as such.
26.2 @ BLUE!
Want the CHALLENGE? 26.2 @ Blue!! Run the Saturday 21.1K and the Blue Mountain Beach 1/2 Marathon and you've nailed down 26.2 @ Blue. You'll receive an award for the 26.2 finish as well as the Saturday and Sunday race shirts, the 21.1K award and race shirt, a 26.2 @ Blue shirt and the 1/2 marathon finisher's award. A full weekend of running with the hardware to show it.
Want a little LESS...but not in distance? RUN RETRO! In a nod to race fees of the past, we offer up retro running. You run/race the race with full race support, chip timing, and a banana or two at the end....but there are no bells, whistle, shirts, finisher's awards, or the schwag that non-Retro Runners will get. You can choose to Run Retro: 30A 5K, 30A 10 Miler, Blue Mountain Beach 1/2, Blue Mountain Beach 10K, 21.1K on 30A, or 26.2 @ Blue. Retro Runners are eligible for overall and age group awards.
Relay races: Not quite up to running a full 1/2? Run the Sunday 1/2 with another in a relay. You and you relay partner want to run Saturday too? Both of you run the 5K on Saturday and then the 1/2 relay on Sanday and you've gotten yourself a Sand Man Relay braggin' right under your belt. race shirts and finisher awards for relays!
