Alys Beach 5K Fun Run

Alys Beach 5K Run  

Grab your running shoes, the race to Labor Day weekend is on. On Sunday, Sept. 2, Alys Beach will hold its inaugural Alys Beach 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run. The 5K course begins and ends at the Alys Beach Amphitheatre, and winds throughout the 158-acre resort town, offering spectacular views of the town architecture, diverse natural habitat and stunning white sand beaches. The course incorporates the nature trail, which meanders through 22-acres of pristine wetlands on the north end of Alys Beach, as well as some of the town’s newer developments and the Gulf Green on the south side of 30A.

“Since health and fitness is such an integral part of life at Alys Beach, we thought a 5K Fun Run would be the perfect addition to our fall calendar of events,” said Kelli Siler, Senior Events Manager at Alys Beach. “Our goal is to create a family-friendly event that our homeowners, guests and visitors to 30A and South Walton can look forward to year after year.”

The event will also include a one miler just for kids. Alys Beach knows kids just want to have fun so the team created a shorter one-mile course that is kid-friendly. Parents are welcome to tag along as a chaperone, but this race is designed specifically for children age 12 and under. At the completion of the race, all participants will each receive a medal. The amphitheatre will be the race headquarters and kids of all ages will have fun cooling down in the splash fountain and playing in the oversized inflatable obstacle course. Music and Piper’s Snack Bar and Charlie’s Doughnuts will enhance the festive atmosphere and day of family fun.

Sunday, September 2, 2012 the 5K will start at 8 a.m., and the 1 Miler starts at 9:30 a.m.

Adults – $20/online in advance, $35/day of the race
Kids – $10/online in advance, $10/day of the race
