Where and When is packet pick up and on-site registration?

Wednesday November 27 from Noon-7pm at the Hub.

Can I bring the whole family to packet pick up and on-site registration?

Yes! Wednesday, November 27 from Noon-7pm we have shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Can I register at packet pick up on Wednesday?

Yes, but we strongly encourage you to register as soon as possible. Last year, the event sold out.

Can I register or pick up my packet on Race Day?

No. There will be no race day registration. We will offer very limited race day packet pick up for emergencies only. We will make every effort to accommodate people traveling into the area race day or having travel delays. Please make every effort possible to pick up your packet on Wednesday November 27th.

Where do we park on race day?

Parking is available at Shades, Alys Beach and Seacrest Beach. We have limited parking at Rosemary Beach.
We strongly encourage you to arrive at a minimum an hour before the race, at 6:30am, to find parking. Highway 30A will be closed to traffic at 7am.
If you are arriving after 7am for the 1 Mile Fun Run, please note that 30A will be closed. Please park at Shades and walk over to the race start.

When does highway 30A close and reopen?

Highway 30A will be closed to traffic for the safety of our runners Thanksgiving morning from 7am-10:30am. Any runners still on the course after 10am will be asked to move to the bike path to finish the race.

Where should I park?

Parking is available at Shades at Inlet Beach, Seacrest Beach, and Alys Beach public parking lots.  Rosemary Beach public parking is extremely limited.  30Avenue has asked that runners do not park vehicles at their venue.

Am I given a refund if the event is cancelled?

Unfortunately the Race Team cannot offer refunds or deferrals in the event they need to cancel the races due to inclement weather or another unforeseen occurrence that could make running or volunteering unsafe.  We hope our runners understand that we put the safety of our runners and volunteers first.

When does the 10K race start?

At 8:30am in Rosemary Beach town center

When does the 5K race start?

At 7:30am in Rosemary Beach town center

When does the 1 Mile Fun Run start?

At 8:35am in Rosemary Beach town center

Can I run with headphones, a stroller or my dog?

For safety reasons headphones are discouraged and we require that all strollers start in the back of the race. We do not allow dogs on the road in the 10K, 5K, or 1 Mile Fun Run.

5K is sold out, can I register for the 10K and run the 5K?

No. We limit 5K registrations for road capacity and safety. In addition, your timing chips are set up for the 10K. This creates significant chaos for our timing of the event and awards and is not fair to other runners. Please DO NOT run the 5K if you are registered for the 10K. No exceptions.

What do I get for my entry?

In addition to your proceeds going toward four amazing charities; All runners receive a premium quality eco-friendly Greenlayer race T-shirt, a reusable bag, special discounts and coupons in the swag bag and Virtual Race Bag, access to the post-race breakfast, a custom designed finishers medal, and lots of bragging rights at Thanksgiving dinner later that day.

Can my family come out and play while I run the race?

Yes! We love spectators. They are welcome to enjoy the post-race breakfast, Facetime photo booth, race vendor shopping, and grab a photo with “Lucky” the 30A 10K Turkey mascot.
If they want to volunteer, we can also put them to work.

Do you give out age group awards?

Awards include male and female prizes for overall, master and grand master categories. We also go three deep in the following age groups for the 5K and 10K: Under 10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80+
