Seaside School Half Marathon

Seaside School Half Marathon LogoThe Seaside School Half Marathon (which includes a 5K) is annually run in early March and March 3, 2013 will be the race's 11th anniversary. The Race attracts over 3000 runners and has quickly become one of the premier races in the Southeast. In 2008, Runner's World magazine gave it the "Best Schwag” award. This year, race planners received three times as many interested participants as they could register. Those who make the cutoff enjoy some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the country, amazing community support, a pre-race expo, free barbecue by Birmingham's Jim 'N Nick's and free beer for racers, live music at the after-party, a custom-designed medal and tech T-shirt and yes, a Vera Bradley tote bag.

Sunburst Beach Vacations is a Platinum Accommodations Sponsor of this event and of the Seaside Neighborhood school. The owners of Sunburst have had 6 children attend (or currently attend) this wonderful charter middle school.

The race makes a nice long weekend stay at the Beach and Sunburst offers special vacation packages around the Race. We also award the top 100 finishers a commemorative mug.

Arts Quest Logo

ArtsQuest In early May, usually on Mother's Day weekend, ArtsQuest is one of the largest of the many events and programs produced by the Cultural Arts Association of Walton County.

After seven years on Grayton Beach's Hotz Avenue, another seven in the historic setting of Eden State Gardens and then another seven in the Village of Baytowne Wharf, the Festival is getting closer to its roots with its move back to Scenic Highway 30A in the Town of Seaside.
