3 Reasons to Run the Coastal Half Marathon
The Saturday after Thanksgiving is well known for shopping, watching football and recuperating from the huge overindulgence of the holiday feast.
It’s time to expand that list with the annual Coastal Half Marathon!
Now in its 13th year, the event entices runners from near and far. Come shed off the turkey and pie with us at the beach on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Bring the whole family to make memories on Alabama's beautiful Gulf Coast. From a 1-mile fun run or a 5K to a half marathon, there is a distance for everyone to walk, run or wheel.
NEED A REASON TO RUN IN THIS EVENT? HOW ABOUT THREE?!
1. Anyone can benefit. Running requires little equipment and can be done alone or with friends/family. Of course, be sure your doctor agrees that you are healthy enough to start a running program - or any exercise program for that matter.
2. It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so it’s the perfect solution for shedding those added Turkey Day pounds. Even if you aren’t a regular runner, any amount of participation will help promote health throughout the holiday season by offering a jumpstart to your exercise routine.
3. The whole family can participate thanks to choices of a one-mile fun run, a 5K or a half marathon, offering a distance suitable for little ones to teenagers to adults.
If that’s not enough, keep in mind that you’ll be enjoying the scenic paved trails that flow through Gulf State Park in the cities of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
