What makes this such a popular race? Is it the refreshing cool breezes in August? The flat course? The race shirt? The finisher medal? The custom age group medals? Probably the 'It's It' ice cream sandwiches at the finish! Find out for yourself at our 10th Annual Summer Breeze races. Everybody will enjoy a flat, easy bayside trail that rarely strays more than a few feet from water. Perfect for setting a personal record.vHikers/walkers are always welcome!

All courses begin and finish on 80-100 yards of grassy field. The 5K is otherwise entirely paved. the 10K has a about 1/2 mile of packed dirt trails. The half marathon is approximately 50% paved and 50% packed dirt.
Half marathon runners must reach the fourth aid station (mile 10) by 11:30 am (20+ minute per mile pace).
HALF MARATHON HIKER DIVISION
For half marathon participants who wish to walk/hike the course and expect to take more than 3.5 hours, we offer a "Hiker Division" start at 7:00 am. Hiker starts will not be eligible to win the race or for age group awards, but will be listed as official finishers in the Hiker Division results and will still receive finisher medals.
Water stations will be stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc. and will be placed at the following approximate mileage:
5K: Mile 1.25
10K: Miles 1.5, 3, 3.25 and 4.7
