Swag for the 30A Challenge Virtual Run include:

  • Cotton/Poly Blend T-Shirt
  • Finisher Medal
  • Digital Race Bib


In lieu of this year’s 30A Half Marathon & 5K, we are excited to introduce the 30A Challenge!  Have you ever thought what it would be like to run all 24 miles of Scenic Highway 30A? Now you can do it– virtually!  Imagine yourself cruising alongside the world's most beautiful beaches, receive some awesome new swag, and support a local non-profit with a global impact, The Sonder Project!  There’s even a chance to win a 3-night stay to Rosemary Beach courtesy of 360 Blue!


Once you are registered you will get instructions on logging your miles ('START LINE' and logging begin on 10/24/2021!).  Each time you log your miles, your results page will show you how far you’ve made it along the 30A Highway. You can run or walk anywhere you want, inside or outside, as long as you log your miles. You do not have to run or walk each day, you just have to finish the total distance (you can also go above and beyond!) between October 24th and October 31st. That is 1 week to complete your goal! You can choose to have a reminder each day to log your distances as well as daily updates with your location and cumulative distanced logged.  We will have a live leader board at the RESULTS page for you to see how you place among the other participants daily!  We ask that you tag any of your photos on social media with #30AChallenge so we can follow along!  

All Participants will receive a shirt and a medal once they complete the event distance (we will begin shipping at the end of October). All made in the USA!  All mileage must be submitted at your unique results page each day or each time you complete a daily mileage (you can enter mileage from previous days or whatever is convenient for you! 


We are proud to share a portion of all proceeds, and 100% of all donations directly with The Sonder Project.  The Sonder Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and working in sub-Saharan Africa to empower impoverished communities through high-impact, sustainable development.  Set-up a fundraising page to support The Sonder Project and join them to improve lives!  The Top Fundraiser will win a 3-night stay to Rosemary Beach, sponsored by 360 Blue.  Learn more HERE.
