The annual Seaside School Half Marathon and 5k is approaching! With thousands of runners coming to the area from over 31 states, the community support for this family-friendly even continues to grow. My Vacation Haven is excited to be a sponsor again for the 2019 race, of which 100% of the profits benefit the Seaside School, a tuition-free, local neighborhood school serving students who not only live along Hwy. 30-A, but also across Walton County. The Seaside School opened in 1996 to thirty-six students, two faculty members, and one administrator serving students in sixth through eighth grades. Today, the school has expanded to fifth through twelfth grades serving over 330 students and currently looking to add grades K-4.
With the race being presented by Vera Bradley, all finishers receive a Vera Bradley tote! The course is fast and mostly flat. The half marathon is USATF certified, and will start and finish in downtown Seaside. From Seaside, the racers will run West along scenic Highway 30A, past the beach towns of Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach, with the halfway point and turnaround at Gulf Place. Half marathoners receive custom finisher’s medallion, and both races give moisture-wicking race shirt, goody bag, lunch, and craft beer! Celebrate at the post-race party and enjoy live music!
