Hoping to sea you at Richmond Beach's great Thanksgiving tradition on November 23! Start your morning off with a splash at this "under the sea" bash as you run, jog or walk a course through scenic Richmond Beach. The course for joggers/runners is 3.4 miles/5.5 km and a shorter 1.6 mile/2.6 km course has been planned for walkers. Park below and meet at the entrance to the Richmond Beach Saltwater Park at 8:30 a.m. for warm up. Dress for the weather and in costume for the theme (optional). After a group photo, participants will be off and running at 9:00 and be finished by around 10:00. This is a free event, but donations for Hopelink are much appreciated! There is no need to pre-register–simply show up, sign a release form and have your name placed in the drawing for awesome prizes. Come as a family, bring a friend or attend solo and meet your neighbors!
The theme is “Under the Sea.” It really is better down where it’s wetter, under the sea! This shellabration calls for fin-tastic costumes, such as a scuba diver, majestic mermaid or submarine. For a whale of a good time, come dressed as a jellyfish, octopus, crab, starfish or one of our very own Richmond Beach Orcas!
Long sleeve T-shirts commemorating the 2017 Richmond Beach Turkey Day Fun Run will be for sale at the event for $20. Cash, checks and credit cards welcome. You will definitely want to add this awesome design to your wardrobe!
RBCA will again host a holiday food/fund/teen gift drive to support Hopelink. This holiday program stocks Hopelink’s Shoreline food bank with extra food so families with few resources can create holiday traditions. In December, Hopelink collects gift cards for teens in partnership with Shoreline’s Holiday Basket event. Help our neighbors in need by bringing either canned food items, a cash donation (make checks payable to “Hopelink”) or gift cards for teens (see suggestions below). Please do not include items that have expired, perishables or those in glass containers.
