  8. Where can we park for the races? We encourage you to get there early! Parking is available at the Watercolor Publix on County Road 395. To get to Seaside – From Hwy 98 go South on Hwy 395 towards CR 30A. When you get to the Publix, volunteers will direct you to an available parking lot. From the Publix parking lot, there will be a shuttle every 10 minutes that will take you to the starting line. The shuttle is the most convenient way to get to the race. With the large number of runners, Seaside will be very crowded and getting in and out with all the closed roads will be next to impossible, so using the shuttle will save you time and aggravation. Shuttles will start running at 5am.

There is no time limit on the 5K Race.

  14. Are there any maps of the race venue? Yes, click here to view the map.
  15. What will the weather be like when I run the Marathon? It’s always a beautiful day in Seaside.  But for those of you who insist on trying to predict Mother Nature, we have compiled the following information: Click Here For Current Race Day Forecast Temperature: The weather in late February and early March is somewhat unpredictable, but the average high is about 69/70 and the average low is about 51/52. Over the past 10 years, it has been as hot as 78 and as cold as 35. Rain: It might rain, it might not. Our Race season isn’t the rainiest time of year, but it’s not the driest time either. (Several years ago it poured during packet pick-up on the Saturday evening before the race; however, we had nice race weather the next day.) Water Temperature: Except for snowbirds and college spring-breakers, most folks find that the Gulf is still too cool for swimming.
  16. What sports drinks are available on the course? Water and Powerade are available at each waterstation.
  17. What can I do before and after the race?» Weekend Events
  18. How do I get a refund if I cannot attend? There are absolutely no refunds.
