Welcome to the Seacoast Running Festival!
We hope you are ready for a great weekend of running! We’re excited to have everyone join us this Sunday, June 18th at Salisbury Beach! Below you will find all the info needed to for our event.
Where: 25 Broadway, Salisbury, MA
This is the address for Surfside which is right by the start and finish location as well as the free brunch that follows.
Start Time: 8am
Always try to be early 🙂
Sunday is looking to be a gorgeous day with high’s reaching the low 80’s. Hopefully our early morning start will keep the temperature and humidity down during the race, however, please be prepared to run in warm weather. Plenty of hydration and sunscreen is necessary!
Registration Pick-up and in-person registration
You will have the option for pre-registration pick up at Groundswell Surf Cafe located at 25 Broadway in Salisbury tomorrow, June 17th from 2pm-4pm.
You will also be able to pick up your registration onsite the morning of the race beginning at 6:30am.
YES, YOU MAY PICK UP A REGISTRATION FOR A FRIEND! Please have their confirmation with you!
In person registration will also be available for any person who would still like to run. However, shirts are not guaranteed.
We have t-shirts for the first 500 registrations. Most runners qualify to receive a shirt. If you are not the first 500, please visit us after the race and we will give away the remainder of the shirts if you did not receive one.
Post Race Party at Surfside
Immediately following the race, all runners are invited to brunch at Surfside 5! We will have free beer as well as live music! You will notice that there is not going to be a standard snack table after the race but that’s because we have plenty of great food waiting for you at Surfside.
All three races start at the same time at 8am. Volunteers will be directing runners at key intersections as well as announcing turns where the various distances (5K, 10K, Half) go separately.
Parking should be easy as there are multiple lots near the start/finish right on Salisbury Beach. Please pay attention to the meters as there is a good chance those are the spots you will be parking in.
Water and Electrolyte Stops
For the half marathon, there will be 6 water stops along the course at approximately every two miles. Gatorade will be at two of these aide stations.
We will have porta-potties onsite near the start and finish line as well as one on the course (half marathon) at the exit of the Ghost Trail before you go under the bridge.
There will be a prize table located onsite at the race. Prizes will be awarded top 2 in age group and listed in 10 year increments for all three races. Sorry, prizes must be claimed at the race and will not be sent home. Stop by to see if you’ve won something!
Seacoast Running Festival is this Father’s Day – Sunday, June 18.
If Dad is a runner, come cheer him on! Beach yoga with Heather Fritz is available for the rest of the family during the race so you can all have a healthy time together. Have a fun-filled morning with the family at Salisbury Beach and stay for Father’s Day brunch on the deck of SurfSide located at Ocean Front North after the race (free for runners, $25 for guests). Wrap up by noon and be home in time for other family activities.
Your entry fee serves as a donation to the Salisbury Beach Partnership. Formed in May 2007, the Salisbury Beach Partnership, Inc. is a non-profit organization created by an active group of Salisbury residents, businesses, environmentalists, community advocates, regional business leaders, and stakeholders who, working with the town of Salisbury and the Salisbury Chamber of Commerce, are implementing strategies to make Salisbury Beach an exciting and welcoming destination for everyone. For other family-oriented event information and updates on what is in the works at the beach (in addition to the boardwalk) please go to our website: www.beachfests.org If you’re not a runner but would like to volunteer, we would love to have you.
