The Seaside Beach Run began back in 1966 by two lifeguards - Ralph and Betty Davis. It was an 8 mile run. In 1974, the Beach Run was reduced to 7 miles and peaked in 1978 with 1200 runners!
The Beach Run is now a 10K/5K event including the 5K Prom Walk -- timed and untimed. It is a great local tradition following the Relay-for-Life and preceding the Hood to Coast. So, get on those running (walking) shoes!
All net proceeds will benefit youth fitness programs to all middle school and high school students in Clatsop County through Fit To Be Teens, Inc. -- a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The Beach Run includes 5K or 10K races for time in the following divisions:
Youth Division (boys) 8 - 14 years
Youth Division (girls) 8 - 14 years
Young Adult (men) 15 - 19 years
Young Adult (women) 15 -19 years
Adult Divisions are divided by decade and gender [for example 20 -29 years (men); 20 - 29 years (women), and so on].
Ribbons will be awarded to first, second and third place finishers in each division; trophies will be awarded to the overall male and female runners with the best time regardless of division.
And Masters trophies to the top man and woman over 40 years old.
Runners, their families and friends are invited to the Awards Picnic at Goodman Park (2 blocks from race site) immediately following the event from 11:15 am - 1 pm.
Bring your old running shoes to recycle after the race!
