A time-honored tradition in the local running community, this year’s event promises to be better than ever, boasting beautiful ocean views,
a gender-specific tech shirt
and a pretty fabulous finishers’ medal.
Runners will start at the Jacksonville SeaWalk Pavilion at low tide (2:00 PM), and head north for 2.5 miles before the turnaround. The five milers will cross the finish line on the return, while the 10 milers will push through another 2.5 miles to the south and back for their finish. Whatever distance you choose, the Winter Beach Run is a great way to hold to those New Year’s fitness resolutions and kick off your year of running.

It’s going to be a chilly one, with a high of about 59 degrees, so bundle up and be ready to rise to the challenge!
Once you’ve collected your bling, don’t forget to celebrate! You should still have time to catch Shine On Hours at Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
