What better way to celebrate Christmas than by gathering with your friends in the running community at the beautiful beaches that we are so fortunate to live near. Santa will be tired from a long night of work so we doubt he will join us, let him know you appreciate all he does by joining out St. Nick costume contest. Winner gets a free entry to a future event.
No Christmas race would be complete without a mistletoe at the finish line, maybe that special someone in your life will be waiting for you there.
Boutique events that remove barriers and help individuals to connect and achieve their goals.
Signing up for one of our run/walk events won’t break the bank. Our low cost races are cozy and intimate, where you have a chance to get to know your fellow runner and your race director if you like. If you don’t want to chat or make new friend but prefer to put in your earbuds and get lost in the ocean breeze, that is total fine as well.
We will take care of you. Let us worry about the water and fuel you need to finish your distance so you can do you. You decide what feels right for you that day.
You have the flexibility to sign up for any of at least four different distances at every one of our friendly gatherings. No hassle, no penalty fee involved if you want to change distances on race day. Small events means not having to get to the event hours before the start or sitting in a line of cars forever to get out of the parking lot.
