Course Details

Restrooms are at Shepard Park. Look for signs on the course.

Low tide is at 9:28 am, so we will have good running conditions all morning.

Miles 1 through 5 of the out course are generally very flat, wide and hard-packed so all 10k runners will have very good running conditions.

The beach begins to slope a bit and is not as wide from mile 5 to the turnaround point at mile 6.55 so 1/2 marathoners take note that conditions will be a little more challenging from mile 5 to about mile 8. The sand is still hard-packed, but the beach is narrower than other parts of the course.

Raceday Logistics

There will be 2 Water & Gatorade Stations for 10k runners at Mile 1, Mile 3.1 and mile 5.

There will be 4 Water & Gatorade Stations for 1/2 Marathon runners at Mile 1, Mile 3.1, Mile 5, Mile 6.55.

The stop at Mile 5 will also have cut bananas. The stop at Mile 6.55 will also have Clif Shots in various flavors such as Razz, Citrus, Chocolate Cherry and Double Espresso.

Travel

The USA Beach Running Championships will be held in Cocoa Beach, FL – just minutes from Cape Canaveral and an hour from the Orlando attractions.
