The building of a new luxury hotel on the far south end of Pier Village caused some creative course changes. In order to prevent bottlenecking on our course, the start time for runners will be at 9:30 AM and walkers will start later at 10:00 AM. This way everyone can be happy. You’ll also note that walkers have the choice of either a 2.5-mile walk or walking the entire 5 mile course.
We will still start and end just north of the Ocean Place Resort & Spa Conference Center near the intersection of Madison Ave and Ocean Ave. The course is a 2.5 mile loop so a 5 mile run or walk will mean following the loop twice.
The course for the Beauty and the Beach Run now has an official USA Track & Field Measurement Certificate.
