This Friday night run on the beach was the perfect ending to the week. The race is part of a 3-race series put on by Race Hawk to benefit VIP Warriors, a group that helps wounded veterans participate in sports.
Runners began arriving at the John's Pass Beach Park around 5:15 pm. Packet pick up and registration was in the shelter next to the parking lot.
I had my bib and race shirt in a couple of minutes, so I walked on the beach while waiting for a friend to arrive.
What You Need to Know

RunAppeal.com was on site with a raffle for running shoes. (I think I heard an announcement that the male/female winners would receive a gift certificate.)
Race Day Parking: Parking was FREE in the John's Pass Park lot only. Get there early, and you'll find a spot. (There is additional paid parking nearby.) The free parking is a great perk in this busy beach town, especially near sunset.
