About This Activity

****ONLY 250 Runners allowed for 10K and 250 allowed for 5K. Please sign up EARLY !

This is the 13th Annual Endless Summer 10K & 5K Runs, which take place in Beautiful Anastasia State Park on September 24th, 2016. The Races are Presented by Don's Friends (www.DonsFriend.com) and hosted by Friends of Anastasia and Anastasia State Park.  2015 was our Biggest in the history of the event.  This event has become VERY Popular.  We SOLD OUT EARLY for both races in 2014 and 2105.    Only 250 Runners will be allowed for the 10K Cross Country 2015, and only 250 for the 5K Beach Run/Walk... so, PLEASE sign up Early !   AND... This year we've added the 0.0K - No Run- No Walk.  This is for those who want that Turtle Shirt, but don't want to Run any race.  The Turtle shirts are Very Popular and many had signed up in the past, JUST to get this shirt.  The 0.0K allows individuals to purchase the shirt only, which leaves open spaces for additional runners.

   Friends of Anastasia's mission statement is "Friends gathered together to celebrate, protect and enhance the natural beauty in Anastasia State Park".

We will have CHIP Timing for both runs - By Race Smith.

About the Runs:


The 5K is mostly on hard packed sand at low tide. This run finishes with a run over a long wood boardwalk and joining the 10K runners on payment to the finish near the race pavilion.   This is in Anastasia State Park which has 4 miles of pristine, beautiful sandy beach.  No homes, buildings or developents.  You will run aprox. 1.1 miles North, turn and run back South.  The race begins at 7:30 am, so you will enjoy the beautiful Ocean Front Sun Rise..........Wow !  

 10K (6.2 mile) Cross Country Run

This 10K (6.2 mile) run through Anastasia State Park's beach, hammock, and saltmarsh takes you through some of St. Johns County's most beautiful terrain. The race begins with a beach loop, traces pavement, dirt roads, and soil through the east nature trail and hammock loop. Runners will hit the pavement and trail again as they head to the marsh loop. The last leg of the run shoots the runners back down the main park road to the Finish Line.  This is a cross country run and participants must be fit to run or walk on soft sand, uneven terrain, mixed pavement types, and hills with sun exposure, heat, and humidity, etc.   

NEW THIS YEAR!! 0.0K (0.0 mile)..no running..just the Shirt!

This is for those who don't want to run but want that Turtle shirt.  You do not pay the fee for the 10k or 5k, but a reduced rate to get the Very Popular Turtle shirt. By doing this race you keep slots open for those who want to run since the races have limited slots available.  Sleep in and pick up your shirt on Friday.  If you don't even want to pick it up on Friday, for $6 we will mail it to you.  Go to the Register Online button on the Registration page for the 0.0K race!
