About This Activity

Each year St. Augustine YMCA awards to individuals and families of our community over $100,000 in membership and program participation fees. Funds raised in this event will help ensure that no one will be turned away because of inability to pay, as well as swim lessons and camp for children.

This is the only race that occurs on the Beach each year in St. Augustine!
