Flat and fast are music to runner’s ears! The Seaside School Half Marathon and 5K are just that. The course starts on scenic Highway 30-A in Seaside. The 5K turns around just on the other side of Western Lake while the half marathon continues on to Gulf Place. The out and back courses pass through several small towns along 30-A. After passing through Seaside, the runners follow 30-A through WaterColor, Grayton, Blue Mountain and turn around in Gulf Place. One of the most picturesque views along the course is the bridge over Western Lake.
From the course you can see the sandy white dunes that are characteristic of the Emerald Coast. The half marathoners will be running through Blue Mountain. No need to panic… There is no mountain, only a slight uphill around mile 4! The course for the Seaside School Half Marathon and 5K is beautiful, fast and flat!
