Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016 @ 7:00 a.m.
SORRY..... NO KID'S RACE THIS YEAR. WE'VE NOT HAD ENOUGH PARTICIPANTS IN THE PAST TO CONTINUE WITH IT. MAYBE WE'LL LOOK AT DOING IT AGAIN IF WE GET ENOUGH REQUESTS.
The 30A 5K race begins and ends near the Blue Mountain Beach Road/30A intersection, across from Nick's Restaurant. Run down and back the recreational/bike path adjacent to Scenic Highway 30A. This is an out and back course.
THE 30A 10 MILER
This is a new race that we've added to the Blue Mountain Beach 1/2 Marathon weekend...we want to be sure that everyone has a distance....and gets enough running! As with the 5K, this race is currently scheduled to begin and end near the Blue Mountain Beach Road/30A intersection, across from Nick's Restaurant. At present, the 10 Miler is scheduled to be run down the recreational/bike path adjacent to Scenic Highway 30A. The race will be an out and back course BUT you will pass through the start/finish as you run up (west) on the trail....up Blue Mountain...a little taste of the 1/2 marathon course.
Yes, you can register for the 5K. Sure, you can register for the 10 Miler....but you can also register for...and, of course...run both! That's the 21.1K on 30A!
Get your run on! Run both the 5K and 10 Mile race. How fast you finish the 5K will depend on how much time you have between the two races. If you run the 21.1K, you'll receive the 5K/10Miler race shirt, the 10 Miler finisher's award, a 21.1K race shirt, and a 21.1K finisher's award....PLUS...you've completed the first day of the 26.2 @ BLUE! (Yes, you can do the 21.1K on 30A as a RETRO RUNNER BUT there's no schwag...though you do qualify for the over-all and age group awards in each race.)
The races are currently scheduled to start and finish on the recreational trail across from:
Nick's on the Beach Restaurant
Blue Mountain Beach/30A
2217 Highway 30A Blue Mountain Beach, FL
The 5K will be run first...starting at 7:00 a.m.
The 10 Miler will be run AFTER the 5K...at approximately 7:45-8:00 a.m.
Run both and you'll have run 21.1K on 30A!
