SEASIDE — The Seaside Beach Run — a community tradition since 1966 — takes place Saturday, July 21.

This year’s event offers several races and activities to meet the needs of a broad range of runners and walkers. Activities include 5K and 10K beach runs, timed and non-timed 5K walks on the historic Promenade in Seaside, and a free “Kid’s Sand Dash” and “Treasure Hunt” for children under 12 — with prizes awarded in several age groups.

The course will begin and end at 12th Avenue at the North Prom beach access, and the entire event will be held on the beach to avoid traffic safety concerns and to celebrate Seaside’s coastal beauty.

Afterward, join us for an awards ceremony and free picnic lunch with food, drinks and prizes.

This charity event encourages fitness, promotes community spirit and showcases the best of the North Coast — and now benefits our local schoolchildren. The event is produced by Fit To Be Teens, Inc. — a non-profit charitable organization. Net proceeds provide fitness opportunities for Clatsop County middle and high school students.

Adult registrations include your souvenir event T-shirt for pre-registrations while supplies last, so register early. Pre-registering for the children’s events helps us prepare by knowing the number of participants. Children’s T-shirts are available separately. We hope you can be there to help us get off to a running start!
