Join Beachside Half Marathon
Dubbed ‘zero beach’ by action-hungry folks in Cocoa Beach, this carefully zoned coastal town, with lovely grassy parks, wide, white, lifeguarded beaches and a pedestrian-friendly downtown, feels like a step into the past. With that being said, the Beachside Half Marathon is the place to be!!
Designed to raise both funds and awareness of the mission of Florida’s Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition, the Beachside Half Marathon for a Healthy Start takes runners on an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at Riverside Park in Vero Beach, and features run for kids/toddler dash in addition to the 13.1-mile race.
“The mission of the Indian River County Healthy Start Coalition is to offer a broad spectrum of programs to assure every pregnant woman and their young children receive necessary healthcare and support services.”
The 13.1 mile 1/2 Marathon starts near the pavilion in Riverside Park with breathtaking views of the intra-coastal and ocean while crossing the two main bridges to Orchid Island. You will run through coastal neighborhoods and the Oceanside retail area with incredible views of the beach and ocean, finishing at Riverside Park.
Host Hotel – Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Vero Beach Oceanside: The hotel is a short walk from the start/finish line of the Beachside Half Marathon making it the perfect place to stay.
Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners, top male and female master, top three finishers in each of the 5-year age groups, (starting with 15-19 and ending with 75+) for the 1/2 Marathon only.
Runners will have four hours to complete the half marathon, followed by the 5K and the kids run.
Timing will be done by Runner’s Depot using the ChronoTrack Systems D-Tag.
