The Half Marathon will begin at 7:00am and will run the entire length of the island before heading off into a beautiful golf resort. The 5K will start at 7:15 spanning the ICW Bridge and back to the park. This Beach Ball 1 Miler is 100% in the park so bring the kids! Sunset Beach was ranked one of the top beaches in the World by National Geographic. You will not want to miss this one!
ALL Finishers will receive a beautiful “Sun-Catcher” Style medal that you will be proud to display either on your wall or in your window. Participants also receive a “Running Trucker” hat. This is part of the #BigAssMedal race series to the half marathon medal is about 7″, 5K is over 4″ and the Beach Ball Miler is a cute 3″ medal. The runner trucker hats are really nice one-size-fits most style but if you’ve grown to love our soft shirts, you can still purchase them.
After the race, hang around a while. We’ll have the DJ playing your favorite tunes, BBQ, Pizza and Beer – plus awards for top 3 overall male and female as well as age groups (every 5 years) for both the 5K and Half Marathon male and female runners. Bring a chair if you’d like, signs to cheer on others and enjoy the after party with us!
