Welcome to the Beach Blast Marathon!!! Course is flat and fast on the beach path! One of the fastest 50k courses around!

This is a low key event, with a limited number of participants accepted and participating (usually no more then 50 people). All the participants will have their results posted with their names and times. And FREE pictures for everyone posted on our facebook page after the event! Pacers and crew are welcome at any time. There are numerous restrooms and water fountains along the course.  We will have the usual buffet of food for competitors ranging from oranges, bananas, GU Gels, water, gatorade, cookies, etc. And anything else participants request.

Here is the 7.85 mi loop: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5643063

5.25 loop: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5643065

2.66 loop Thorton Ave about half way to 5.25 loop

2.17 mi mile loop Rose Ave going towards Thorton Ave http://www.gmap-pedometer.com?r=5634764


10 mi = 1 large loop and one 2.17 mi small loop, 7.85 plus 2.17 = 10.02

Half marathon = 1 medium loop and 1 large loop 5.25 plus 7.85 = 13.1

Marathon = 3 times large loops and 1 small loop (small loop ran first) = 23.55 plus 2.66 = 26.21

50k = 4 large loops = 31.4 mi


Time Limits: NONE!

No DNFs here.  A person, at anytime, can drop down from the 50 mi to the 50k, etc.. If a person does not complete a 50k, marathon or any other distance, then we WILL make a distance that the person completed in increments of common standard distances: 5k, 10k, 10mi, half marathon, marathon, etc.

Check in and bib pick up starts at 6:15am until the start of the race at 7:00am on race day. Everyone gets a medal. Send us an email letting us know what you would like at the aid stations, we will try and personalize the food as much as possible. This is YOUR race and we want to make it as special as possible.
