Seaside, FL has an awesome turnout for its 10th annual Seaside Half Marathon this past weekend. Although I do not participate, I do have a bird’s eye view of the racers from my 4th story condo. My dog Dolly who viewed the race for the first time in her life loved it too.

There were 3,700 runners and 300 volunteers this year. This is the maximum amount of runners allowed for this race. The race begins at Seaside and the turnaround point is Gulf Place along the 30A corridor. The event benefits the Seaside Neighborhood School.
Female runners far outweigh the males runners, with 74% participation. It ends up being more of a girl’s getaway weekend and a reason to come to the beach. The race has grown in popularity now attracting runners from out of the country.
Seaside, FL is a popular area with restuarants, shops, and music and entertainment year round.
If you are looking to visit the area anytime soon, it should be a must on your places to see.
