Run off Your Thanksgiving Turkey
This time of year, we are anticipating the fast approaching holiday season. We have some enjoyable events coming up that will add to all the festivities during the most wonderful time of the year.
How about running down south to celebrate with food and fun on the beach? Go over the river and through the woods with the whole family as you make your way down to the beaches of the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. If you eat too much on Thanksgiving, we have a way you can shed that turkey weight you may gain. Run away with us at the 2014 Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals Coastal Half Marathon and 5K Run, a holiday tradition brought to you by Team Magic and the Gulf Shores Orange Beach Sports Commission. The event is set to take place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 29, 2014.
If you're not in half marathon shape yet, you're in luck because there is a distance for everyone. A 5k run and a 1 mile fun run will also take place. The Half Marathon will begin at 8 a.m., while the 5k and 1 mile fun run start at 8:10 a.m.
During the event, you will enjoy running on the serene, scenic paved trails through Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The mix of paved trail throughout with stretches on the Gulf State Park main drive- all but about 1/3 mile is on the beautiful, back-country paved trail system.
Following the race, be sure join us for the post-race party at the Orange Beach Sportsplex with great food and drink, Gulf Coast style! It will be a great way to mingle with other runners and their families.
You can register online until midnight on Tuesday, November 25, 2014.
