In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and prioritize the health and safety of our community and our participants, the Seaside School, Inc. and Seaside School Foundation have decided to move forward with a Virtual Half Marathon + 5K for our 19th annual event.
Our race planning committee and leadership team explored a multitude of scenarios that led us to conclude the event could not be executed on our beloved Scenic Highway 30A during the pandemic with the enthusiasm and atmosphere our runners have come to expect. More importantly, we simply cannot offer a traditional race in a manner where the safety and security of our runners, staff, students, volunteers, partners and spectators is optimally achieved.
Your continued support and participation in 2021 is so important to us. Proceeds from the Seaside School Virtual Half Marathon + 5K benefit the Seaside School, Inc. Founded in 1996, The Seaside School, Inc. was one of the first and is now one of the oldest surviving public charter schools in the state of Florida. The Seaside School opened to thirty-six students, two faculty members, and one administrator serving students in sixth through eighth grades. Today, the school has expanded to fifth through twelfth grades serving over 380 students. For the past 25 years, our ambitious staff, involved parents and supportive community have led the Seaside Schools, comprised of the Seaside Neighborhood School and Seacoast Collegiate High School, to be consistently recognized as leaders at both state and national achievement levels. Our continued growth and success of The Seaside Way reaffirms what our charter pioneers understood a quarter-century ago. Led by continual support, exploration, accountability, scholarship, independence, dreams and effort, students cultivate their diversity and begin to understand ways that they can make unique contributions to society.
The 2020-2021 school year marks the Silver Anniversary milestone for the Seaside Schools, and we look forward to proudly sharing our ambition, mission and success with our community for many years to come!
Shipping of the above event merchandise (if applicable) is included in registration fee.
Not your ordinary finisher t-shirt… this poly and rayon tee is made from a soft, lightweight jersey that delivers lasting comfort and an easy style perfect for a run. The shirt is also a great casual wear piece, just what you want to kick around in after a race. The sizing of this shirt is modeled after the Nike Performance line. Our team is happy to answer questions about materials or sizing of the shirts. Simply email email@example.com with questions.
Vera Bradley’s ReActive Sling Backpack provides the cargo space of a small backpack and the effortlessness of a hands-free crossbody style. This modern take is your new go-to for city treks, long bike rides and strolls through campus. Now in sustainably-sourced ReActive material made from recycled plastic water bottles (10 bottles go into every pack!), it's a smart choice for you and the environment. Lightweight and water-repellent too, it can be worn across your back or your chest for easier accessibility. It's got a whole lot going for it ... just like you!
Made from 100% cotton, the non-medical Pleated Face Masks are soft, breathable and comfortable to wear. Pleat construction allows the fit of the mask to be easily adjusted, and the elastic goes behind the head to alleviate pressure on ears. With two layers of fabric, they feature a pocket for a disposable filter (not included), and of course, the mask is machine washable.

Every year, the gap between the Seaside School standard of excellence and the funding provided by the state seems to grow more and more. There are either funding cuts or we simply want more for the students. In any case, the shortfall is significant each year. Whether you’re a runner or sponsor, please know that your support is needed and appreciated. Your participation reduces class size. Your participation provides middle school and high school students the opportunity to participate in elective classes for gardening, music, art, an award-winning robotics program, advanced placement classes as well as career-readiness industry certification courses. Great things are happening at the Seaside School… thanks to you! The funds raised from the 2021 Seaside School Virtual Half Marathon + 5K will support the Seaside School Foundation’s Educate, Gather & Grow initiative.
EDUCATE | The Seaside School, Inc. is committed to enhancing and extending learning beyond the classroom walls. Our students exemplify The Seaside Way by prioritizing academic goals, exploring possibilities and pursuing opportunities that contribute to long-term success.
GATHER | The Seaside School, Inc. plans to expand and renovate Seaside Neighborhood School, establish a permanent campus for Seacoast Collegiate High School, and develop The Academic Village at the Seaside Neighborhood School. This endeavor will create purposeful, flexible space in our neighborhood to support our local community and guests.
GROW | Growing our spaces and growing our programs will create opportunities for community partnerships, help to establish our Capital Endowment Funds, and provide lifelong learning and growth opportunities for students in the classroom and beyond.
