We set out with an idea to create a large running event that embraces and supports our local community. Instead of just another run, we wanted to create something special where the community really gets involved and excited. The marathon is the nucleus of the weekend, but we added other events such as a 1/2 marathon, 5K, sand kids run and a 2 Day beach party with live music. We wanted to create a whole weekend of fun for everyone.
Each year we involved our runners involved in helping shape the look of the event, by asking them to vote on aspects of the race from T-Shirt design to Medal Design and more. We want our running community to feel like this is their race as much as it is ours and go home with lots of awesome swag.
