Winter Solstice Run

The Winter Solstice Run will take place DEC 21 from 6am-6pm, beginning at the easternmost point of Scenic 30A. It is an all-day ultra-run, starting at sunrise, continuing 40 miles along the beaches, around the many lakes of South Walton, and through Florida state forests until sunset. This is all about fun, adventure and camaraderie – it’s not a race!  
The Run offers four distance options:
40 miles | The whole shebang. Start at sunrise and finish at sunset!
20 miles | Half-Solstice option: Begin with the team and run the first 20 miles!
Relay | You and three others each run a 10 mile leg (4 per team)!
The First 10 | Begin with the team and run the first 10 miles!
Following the run, join fellow participants in a post-run celebration on the beach and a dip in the ocean during sunset.
There is not a registration fee for The Winter Solstice Run. Instead participating runners are asked to solicit pledges from friends and family to support Project Congo – a goal of $1,000 per runner, but all contributions are welcome. Funds will go directly to On The Ground’s Project Congo supporting women’s empowerment programs in the eastern region of the DRC.
