Blue Mountain Beach Half Marathon and 10K
Run the only "mountain" on Florida's beautiful Gulf Coast! Blue Mountain Beach that is! Both the 1/2 marathon and 10K are run on and adjacent to Florida's Scenic 30A which splits sugar-white sand beaches and rare coastal dune lakes. Enjoy the beachside villages of Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton, and Seaside before and after the races. A one of a kind course!
Run Saturday and Sunday!
The 1/2 marathon will start at 7:00 a.m. with the 10K starting at 7:05 am. The races will start approximately 1.25 miles north of Blue Mountain Beach on 30A, run south (east) on 30A, turn right on Blue Mt. Beach Road, go left on Blue Lake Rd, right on 30A (recreational path at this point), right on Defuniak St to Grayton Beach. The 1/2 marathon continues through Grayton, left on Holtz, left on Banfill, left on Lydia Ave, right on Defuniak, right on 30A, to just at the Watercolor entrance where the runners turn around and then retrace their steps back to the finish. Though this is Florida, you'll find that this course rolls enough to keep it fun. Note that the 10K is out and back as well, following the same course but turning around and heading back just before reaching the Grayton Beach area. Both races end at the Blue Mountain Beach Road/30A intersection near Big Daddy's Bikes!
