USA Beach Running Championship 10K & Half Marathon routes

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.
