There are finisher's awards for both the 10K and the 1/2 and awards for both races are overall and age group. All runners registered by September 27, 2017 will receive long sleeve uni-sex cotton Comfort Color (or similar) shirts.

Want a little LESS...but not in distance? RUN RETRO! In a nod to race fees of the past, we offer up retro running. You run/race the race with full race support, chip timing, and a banana or two at the end....but there are no bells, whistle, shirts, finisher's awards, or the schwag that non-Retro Runners will get. You can choose to Run Retro: 30A 5K, 30A 10 Miler, Blue Mountain Beach 1/2, Blue Mountain Beach 10K, 21.1K on 30A, or 26.2 @ Blue. Retro Runners are eligible for overall and age group awards.
Relay races: Not quite up to running a full 1/2? Run the Sunday 1/2 with another in a relay. You and you relay partner want to run Saturday too? Both of you run the 5K on Saturday and then the 1/2 relay on Sanday and you've gotten yourself a Sand Man Relay braggin' right under your belt. race shirts and finisher awards for relays!
