This USATF Sanctioned event is open to runners and walkers of all ages. The course takes runners over Iola Drive, through Sunset Bay, and down South Shore Drive, twice. Note: This event takes place on pavement, not on sand.

Prizes are awarded to the first overall male and female finishers, top 3 male and female runners in each age group, and first overall male and female walkers.

Cotton t-shirts and special gifts are available for the first 175 registrants. Free parking and an all-day beach pass are included with registration for all participants.
