Sandy Claws Beach Run on Siesta Beach
SARASOTA COUNTY – The pre-registration deadline for the 38th Annual Sandy Claws Beach Run, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13, on Siesta Beach, is drawing near.
Pre-registration ends Nov. 26, and so does the opportunity for runners to pay a reduced fee. Pre-registration for the 5K is $25, and $20 for the 1-mile Fun Run. The race-day registration fee is $30 for both runs.
The race, sponsored by Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources and Drs. Heidi Anderson and Paul Brannan of DOCs (Dermatology & Oculoplastic Consultants), is sanctioned by the Manasota Track Club and chip-timed. It takes place at Siesta Beach, 948 Beach Road, Sarasota, with race-day registration beginning at 7 a.m. The 1-mile Fun Run begins at 8 a.m., and the 5K run is at 8:20 a.m.
Try kinesiology taping, offered pre- and post-race, and enjoy a post-race party featuring music, a holiday-themed costume contest, raffle prizes, a holiday photo op, food and beverages.
Pre-registered runners receive a long-sleeve event shirt in your choice of wicking or 100% cotton and a goody bag. Race-day registrants receive event shirts while supplies last. Awards are presented to the first six places in each age group: trophies for first through third place and trophies for fourth through sixth place.
