To break up the monotony of a treadmill or standard neighborhood loop, many runners try visualization and imagine themselves on the beach like Baywatch or Chariots of Fire. This July in Seaside, runners can make those fantasies a reality. Now in its 53rd year, the Seaside Beach Run is a fun community event with a 10k, 5k, and Sand Dash for children.
The course for all races begins and ends at 12th Avenue and North Promenade, and the entire race is on the beach. The 10k starts facing north, and the 5k starts facing south, and awards are given to the top finishers. Not everyone wants spend their day at the beach competing, so participants have the option of a casual 5k Prom Walk or a free Sand Dash for children. Following the Sand Dash, kids can join in a free treasure hunt, and participants of all races are invited to a free picnic lunch.
Scholarships are available for teens in Clatsop County. Interested parties can contact info@SeasideBeachRun.org for application information.
The Seaside Beach Run celebrates being active, coming together, and enjoying our beautiful ocean. Capacity is limited, so register early to ensure your place in this historic race!
