The Purpose

The 30A 10K and 1 Mile Fun Run is a three-day series of events focusing on kicking off the holiday season with fun, family activities and raising money for local charities. The capstone event – the 10K and 1 mile fun run races take place on Thanksgiving Day as runners race down scenic highway 30A.

The focus of our events is to invite locals and visitors to experience the beauty of South Walton County; give back to local charities; promote health and fitness; and enjoy meals, shopping and outdoor activities throughout our amazing local communities.

In this, our 5th year, the race expects to sell out with more than 2,000 runners on the road and more than 6,000 estimated participants joining in our three days of events. In the past four years, the race has raised more than $150,000 for local needy families and children. With more events, more participants and more local businesses sponsoring us every year, we are confident we can help our charities even more this year.

Last Year’s Race Numbers

  • Sold out with nearly 2,000 participants plus a huge crowd of supporters on race day.
  • 6,000+ race attendees
  • Racers traveling from 34 states
  • The race raised a record-breaking total of $48,000 for local non-profits

Why Sponsor?

This year, our goal is to increase the size of both our race and the amount of money we can give back to charities. To reach our goal, we are seeking support from local businesses.

The 30A 10K is already one of the most prominent events in South Walton County. Sponsors have the ability to market to thousands of enthusiastic runners and supporters who have traveled here from across the country. Sponsoring the 30A 10K race provides your company with the wonderful opportunity to reach new customers and build a brand that promotes healthy living and outdoor fun.
