Name: Port Aransas Sand Crab 5K/10K, Kid Mile Nighttime Beach Run
Date: July 27, 2019
Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
The Sand Crab, run entirely on sand, on the beach, is a great way to get a little exercise under the stars on the beautiful Port Aransas Beach at night then reward yourself with  a few cold beers beers (with proper ID), and refreshments while you listen to great music with other runners on a mid summer Texas evening. This 5K run is very walker friendly with a 2hr cut off. The 10K is walkable but shares the 2 hr cut off.  10K runners must be at the 3.1 mile turnaround within 1 hour. The Sand Crab starts on the beach at IB McGee Park Headquarters and runs south for 3.1 or 1.55 miles (depending on the distance). Runners turnaround at flashing red lights manned by police and head back to the finish. The post race bash will be held on the beach at I.B. Magee Park.  The course will follow orange flashing lights placed every one tenth of a mile.   The flashing lights do not light the beach, they only let you know where the course is.  Runners are required to run with a flashlight or head lamp in order to see where you are going. Without them you will not see sand castle holes and other hazards. Make sure you have ample lighting in order to run a pitch dark beach at night. There are 2 water stops with sports drink and water hit 2X ea for the 10K and 1 hit 2X for the 5K. After finishing we will have beer, refreshments, food for sale and music to enjoy on the beach.
