Surfside Beach Marathon Route
The race is run on the beach. There is lots of room for runners, but the beach will also be open to vehicular traffic.

The starting line is in front of Stahlman Park. It is an out-and-back race, taking runners to San Luis Pass and back to the start. Being on a beach, the running surface is flat, and soft and will vary depending on tide and weather conditions.
