Run, Eat, Sleep, Repeat

Run the Beach SeriesDo you love running and dream about finishing your next marathon in record time? Conquer the Run the Beach Series by completing the full or half marathon at the Big Beach Marathon, the Sea Turtle Half Marathon, and the Kaiser Half Marathon, all taking place on the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. Following the Kaiser Half Marathon in November, those who complete all three events will receive a Run the Beach jacket and medal depicting all three races.

Big Beach Marathon
The Big Beach Marathon has a flat and fast course and beautiful scenery too. It runs through the paved trail system of Gulf State Park before finishing the last three miles on Beach Boulevard with great views of the Gulf. And remember, the Big Beach Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifier race so put those running shoes on and sprint to the finish line. If running a full or half isn’t quite what you had in mind, then pick some friends and enjoy the four-person relay race. The race starts and finishes at the dining and entertainment beach headquarters of Gulf Shores, The Hangout.
