30A 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run
The Fourth Annual 30A 10k and One Mile Fun Run, the official RRCA State 10K Championship Race, takes place Thanksgiving weekend in Rosemary Beach. All proceeds from the three-days of festivities are given to 501c3 charities.
The 30A 10K is one of the largest running races in South Walton with an estimated 6,000 participants, vendors and volunteers joining together in three days of events throughout the community.
This three-day event begins Tuesday, Nov. 24 with “Breakfast with Lucky, the 30A 10K Turkey” at Watercolor Inn’s Fish out of Water restaurant. On Wednesday, families and the public are invited to join in a fall celebration with games, music and food at the 30A 10K Fall Festival and race packet pick up at Watersound Origins. The three days of activities concludes with a fantastic Thanksgiving Day run from Rosemary Beach down highway 30A and back.
For the second year in a row, the 30A 10K has been awarded one of the highest honors for a road race. The Road Runners Club of America, the nation’s oldest and largest running club, has designated the 30A 10K to be the Florida State Championship 10K race. This means that whomever wins the race overall and in certain age categories will be crowed the Florida State Championship 10K winner and will receive a one-of-a-kind RRCA medal.
