    There are many great ways to get involved and help support the annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K: volunteers, silent auction, and sponsorships.

    Are you interested in becoming a valued sponsor of the race?

    Your support means a great deal to the children of the Seaside Neighborhood School, Seacoast Collegiate High School and our community.

    The Seaside School Foundation wants to offer your business the opportunity to become a sponsor in our biggest event of the year – the Annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K Run. Heralded as the largest outdoor sporting event in the area and one of the top-ranked road races in the Southeast United States, we expect more than 4,000 runners to participate in the race this year. In total, our race attracts about 10,000 people to the area during race weekend. Our marketing efforts reach coast to coast, and our website is seen by thousands of visitors. Stay tuned for 2020 Race Weekend sponsorship opportunities!!

    Whether you are a serious distance racer or a casual weekend runner, come join the fun and run in the 18th Annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K. If you’ve ever seen the Jim Carrey film, The Truman Show, then you have an idea of the kind of beautiful coastal architecture that you’ll find along the route at the annual race. The course takes runners on a long, straightaway-style out-and-back course along Highway 30A through several beach towns that stretch along Florida’s Gulf coast.

    Every year, the gap between The Seaside School standard of excellence and the funding provided by the state seems to grow more and more. There are either funding cuts or we simply want more for the students. In any case, the shortfall is significant each year. Whether you’re a runner, sponsor, or enjoying the Taste of the Race, please know that your support is needed and appreciated. Your participation reduces class size. Your participation provides middle school and high school students the opportunity to participate in elective classes for gardening, music, art, an award winning robotics program, advanced placement classes as well as career-readiness industry certification courses. Great things are happening at the Seaside School… thanks to you!

    Saturday, February 29th (Leap Day!) - Race Expo
    Seaside Lyceum | 12-6pm


    The Race Expo is always a fun filled day in Seaside, Florida where everyone is welcome to come out to pick up a race tshirt, listen to some music and spend time with friends, bid on auction items and enjoy a beautiful day all around town.

    The Race Expo is free to attend and open to the general public from 12:00 to 6:00 PM at the Seaside® Lyceum. This is the time for race participants pick up their registration packets and highly sought after commemorative race shirt. As all of the weekend’s events are uniquely Seaside®, this is no ordinary packet pick-up party. Local and national vendors at the Expo will offer a wide variety of equipment, apparel, footwear and accessories for runners in addition to specialty items that anyone would enjoy.

    The Silent Auction continues during the day with plenty of opportunity to bid up your favorite items including local vacation packages, one-of-a-kind artwork from South Walton artists and rare merchandise that can’t be found anywhere else. Like all events that are a part of the 2020 Seaside® School Race Weekend, the Race Expo takes place in the heart of Seaside® with its dozens of shops, restaurants, art galleries and sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico making it the perfect precursor to the weekend’s main event.
