BLUE MOUNTAIN BEACH RACES

Brief Description

Run the only "mountain" on Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast! Blue Mountain Beach that is! All races are run on the recreation trails and roads that are adjacent to Florida's Scenic 30A which splits sugar-white sand beaches and rare coastal dune lakes. Enjoy the beachside villages of Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton, and Seaside before and after the races. A one of a kind course!

Run Blue Mountain Beach 13.1 & 10K

There is no better time to be on 30A and at the beach than the Fall!

Off to the Races

The 1/2 marathon and 10K will start together at 7:00 a.m. Sunday, October 11, 2015.
 
The races will start approximately .2 miles north/west of the 30A/Defuniak Road intersection which is Grayton Beach.

13.1:
The start/finish is just up (west) 30A from the Grayton Beach General Store (32 E County Highway 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459). You'll start on 30A run south (east) on 30A, after approximately .2 miles,  turn right on Defuniak St , left on Holtz, left on Banfill, left on Lydia Ave, right on Defuniak, right onto the recreational path (not the highway) that parallels 30A, to a turn around just at the beginning of Watercolor  after which you'll retrace your steps back to go left on Defuniak, left on Holtz, left on Banfill, left on Lydia, right on Defuniak, left onto the recreational path (not 30A) that parallels 30A  and continue up the recreational path until taking a left onto Blue Lake Road (yup, there's a hill there), continue on Blue Lake (it's a tar and gravel...not a smooth ...road) until it dead ends (stop sign) where you turn right on Blue Mountain Beach Road, continue on Blue Mountain Beach Road until it intersects  (Y intersection) with 30A at which time you go left onto the recreational path (not onto 30A) that parallels 30A and run it until a turn around at or near the Gulfview Place/30A intersection (near Goatfeathers Restaurant) and then retrace your steps back towards the start so....run on the recreational path  paralleling 30A until a right  (sorta a Y) onto Blue Mountain Beach Road, left on  Blue Lake Rd, right on 30A (recreational path at this point), to the finish which is near the start at the 30A/Defuniak (Grayton Beach) intersection. Though this is Florida, you'll find that this course rolls and climbs enough to keep it fun and interesting! (You'll be essentially uphill from Blue lake road to the Goatfeathers turn around...but it's essentially all downhill from there!) This is the same course as the last few years BUT we've got a new start finish! 

10K:
10Kers...You'll have water views, dune lakes, and a nice neighbrhood...PLUS, it's really flat and fast! 

The start/finish is just up 30A from the Grayton Beach General Store (32 E County Highway 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459)....same as the 1/2 marathon start. You'll start on 30A run south (east) on 30A, after approximately .2 miles,  turn right on Defuniak St , left on Holtz, left on Banfill, left on Lydia Ave, right on Defuniak, right onto therecreational path (not the highway) that parallels 30A, to a turn around just at the beginning of Watercolor  after which you'll retrace your steps back to go left on Defuniak, left on Holtz, left on Banfill, left on Lydia, right on Defuniak, left onto the recreational path (not 30A) that parallels 30A to the finish line which is on the recreational path...not 30A!

Run More: 30A 5K & Blue Mtn. Beach 1/2 Marathon (Blue Mt. Man/Blue Mt. Woman)

Run the 30A 5K on Saturday; the 1/2 marathon on Sunday!
Special awards for completing both!

Run Both--30A 5K & Blue Mtn. Beach 10K (Sand Dune Man/Sand Dune Woman)

Run the 30A 5K on Saturday; the Blue Mountain Beach 10K on Sunday! Special awards for completing both!

RUN 26.2 @ BLUE 
The challenge...26.2 miles...but not all on the same day. Run 21.1K on 30A on Saturday and then the Sunday 1/2 marathon...that's 26.2 @ BLUE! You'll receive shirts from races on both days, a 26.2 @ BLUE shirt, medals from the 30A 10 Miler and Blue Mountain Beach 1/2 Marathon...plus a 26.2 @ Blue finisher's award...but you've got to finish it all to get that bling! 

1/2 Marathon Relay

Don't want to run the full marathon? Split it up! One runner runs the first 10K (6.2 miles) and the other runs the rest of the course (6.9 miles)...finishers medals to both!



Sand Dune Relay


Run Saturday and Sunday. Run the 30A 5K on Saturday and the 1/2 Marathon relay on Sunday! 

Both relay members complete the Saturday 5K and then split the 1/2 marathon on Sunday with o
ne runner running the first 10K (6.2 miles) and the other running the rest of the course (6.9 miles)...1/2 relay finishers medals to both! Special awards for competing both days!

Race Limits/Race Timing

The combined number of runners for the 1/2 marathon and 10K is 2500. Runners will be chip/electronically timed. At present, we are not establishing a time frame in which you have to complete the course BUT we reserve the right to start breaking down aid stations and presenting awards at the 3 hour mark!

Finishers Awards

All pre-registered finishers in the 10K, 1/2 marathon, and 1/2 marathon relay will receive finishers awards. Late  registrants are not guaranteed a finishers medals at the finish line BUT may receive one post race via mail...handling/postage fees will apply for mailing of medals.

Overall and Age Group Awards

Awards will be given to the top 3 overall female and male runners, the top Masters (over 40 years old) male and female, the top Grandmasters (over 50 years old) male and female, and the top 3 females and males in each age group. Age groups begin at 14 and under, 15-19 and are 5 year increments thereafter. Age group awards will be medals or a similar award!

NOTE: We try to give out awards as soon as possible after the race is completed. We intend to post times as we near the race date at which awards will be presented. At present: 10K awards will be at 8:30 am; 1/2 marathon awards will be at 10:30 am. We have to rely on the timing company for the results and want for them to be complete or at least mostly complete when we do the awards ceremony. Though chip timed, this takes time. Please be patient! 
Also, we do not mail awards unless arrangements are made with the race directors.

Race Shirts
Each person registered before September 27, 2015 will receive a race shirt. The shirts are gender specific so order accordingly. We order based on your order so....you'll have to go with the size that you select! No guarantees on size or quantity for those registering after September 27!
