Winter Solstice Run along Scenic 30A

What: Winter Solstice Run along Scenic 30A

Amavida Coffee is hosting the Winter Solstice Run in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, raising awareness and funds for gender equality and women’s empowerment in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Dec. 21. 
The run begins at sunrise from the easternmost point of Scenic Hwy 30A and continues 40 miles along Scenic Hwy 30A, around the many lakes of South Walton, and back through Florida state forests, until sunset.
Distance Options
The Run offers four options:
40 miles - The whole shebang. Start at sunrise and finish at sunset!
20 miles - Half-Solstice option: Begin with the team and run the first 20 miles!
Relay - You and three others each run a 10 mile leg (4 per team)!
The First 10 - Begin with the team and run the first 10 miles!
Following the run, join fellow participants in a post-run celebration on the beach and a dip in the ocean during sunset.
The Winter Solstice Run will take place at sunrise, Sunday, December 21, 2014. Participating runners will have approximately 12 hours to finish the 40 miles. (That’s a minimum pace of about 18 minutes per mile)
There is no registration fee for The Winter Solstice Run. Instead participating runners are asked to solicit pledges from friends and family to support Project Congo – a goal of $1,000 per runner, but all contributions are welcome. Funds will go directly to OTG’s Project Congo supporting women’s empowerment programs in the eastern region of the DRC.
After registering you will receive an entire packet about the run details, fundraising and more information about On The Ground and Project Congo.
