Our 3rd annual Beach Run is completely on the white sand of Florida and Alabama along the beautiful water of the Gulf of Mexico!
100% of the registration fees of this half marathon and 5k will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full scholarship grants as well as educational and family counseling to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty, and immediate financial assistance for severely wounded personnel and their families.
Join us in paying special tribute to one of the fallen and their family during a ceremony at the awards.
Everyone who participates in the half marathon will receive a completion medal in addition to receiving awards in overall and age categories. 5K run or walk participants will also receive awards in overall and age categories.
After the race stay with us for a great selection of food, donated Anheuser-Busch products from the Lewis Bear Company, and live entertainment!
Can't join us in person for this great event, but want to be included? Sign up as a virtual runner & still support Special Operations Warrior Foundation. You will receive a Virtual Completion Certificate and your souvenir shirt by mail (up to the first 400 participants who sign up).
