What began as a small fundraiser for the Seaside Neighborhood School is now a cherished annual tradition, with tickets for the races selling out months in advance. The Seaside School Half Marathon & 5k Run is scheduled for March 3, 2019, and will welcome runners on a fast, mostly flat course that runs through quaint beach towns along scenic 30-A. Starting at 7 a.m. from Seaside, the racers will run west past the beach towns of Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach with the halfway point and turnaround at Gulf Place.
After the race is over, exhausted medal-toting runners are treated to a free live concert in Seaside’s amphitheater, slow-cooked barbecue, hand-blown glass trophies for category winners and Vera Bradley handbags. Half marathon finishers also receive a custom medal.
