    The World's Longest Beach Run; 5K & Athlete Challenge

    (a BRS Stomp of Approval event)



    Welcome to the Destin Beach Ultra Runs! This is a race your ENTIRE family will want to attend with you! Who wouldn't want to spend a day at a great beach resort supporting their runners and a great cause?

    In the past 3 years our runners have raised over $100,000 for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation to educate the children of our fallen spec ops heroes.

    These running races takes place on the white sand beaches of Destin, Florida and next to the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. That's right, the entire races are in the sand!

    I was there.
    Too cold for barefoot running.
    42 - 48 degrees Fahrenheit.
    I aimed for a 100K, but OK, I managed 2 marathons.
