Grayt Easter 5K at Grayton Beach State Park
Greetings! We’re excited to announce that registration for the GRAYT EASTER 5K is NOW OPEN! The 2020 race will be taking place at Grayton Beach State Park on Saturday, April 11, 2020. Race start is 8:00a. We’re even more excited to announce that, starting this year, the Grayt Easter 5K will offer TWO distinct courses to choose from: the CLEAN FEET course and the DIRTY FEET course. More on the courses in a moment.
There will be an awards ceremony beginning at 9:00a, where the men’s and women’s course winners will be presented their awards. Age-group awards for both males and females will also be given.
All registered runners will also receive a very cool race shirt. We’ll also have plenty of snacks and drinks available for after the race.
Timing for the Grayt Easter 5K will be provided by Gulfsport Timing.
Now to explain the two courses…
CLEAN FEET: The highlight of the Clean Feet course is an out and back course to the bridge along CR-30A that leads to Watercolor, where you should get a great view of the Grayton Beach slash pine tree canopy (featured in the photo above)! It’s run entirely on pavement so, as the name suggests, your shoes SHOULD stay clean.
DIRTY FEET: The highlight of the dirty feet course includes a trek through the village of Grayton Beach followed by a near one-mile stretch of running in the sand. Furthermore, the Dirty Feet course may include a trip through the “outflow” – a stream (or small river) of water that, when Western Lake gets full, connects Western Lake to the Gulf of Mexico. After running down the beach, runners will proceed back into Grayton Beach State Park. It’s all but guaranteed: you run this course, your feet WILL get dirty!
To be sure, both courses are incredibly beautiful! Furthermore, the race should make for a fantastic start to your Easter weekend!
