About

Thanks everyone for a fun and scenic 2018 beach run! Results are located here. We will announce the date of next years run in Winter of 2019. 

Come out for a morning beach run with great views, ocean breezes and of course treats at the end. Check out our day of race schedule below. The course is on the beach and this beach is mixed with sand, tidal pools, and sections of rocks and pebbles so going barefoot is not advised. The halfway point is when you reach Carkeek Park about 1.5 miles out. There is an optional creek crossing for the more adventurous of the bunch. Pre-registration is $25 and if you are a student or under 14 email us for a discount code. A super low tide only hits a weekend morning a couple times a year so we decided to make an event out of it. A portion of the entry fee will go towards the not for profit Earth Runs.
