Dashing Thru The Sand

Dashing Thru The Sand, the annual Boxing Day Beach Run/Walk is scheduled for Tuesday, 26 December.

This highly-anticipated activity is one of the holiday season most enjoyable events. Visitors and residents alike look forward to run, jog, walk, stroll, amble, and meander, and a large number of participants lay claim to taking part every year since 1998.Sponsored by Quin & Hampson since 1999, some enthusiasts request event shirts even though they are unable to be present for the one- and one-half mile jaunt along Seven Mile Beach.

The action is organized by the Phoenix Athletic Club and includes all the ingredients for a fun-filled morning.

The $15 entry fee covers JOHN BROAD-designed event shirts, prizes for fastest and lastest finishers,(and for many in between), souvenirs for all finishers, lots of random prizes, and last, but not least, breakfast on the beach at Courtyard By Marriott.

Pre-race day registration is strongly encouraged. For entry forms, call 945-3970, or contact [email protected]. Pickup of entry forms and delivery of shirts may be arranged.

Registration on Tuesday morning, 26 December, will be conducted under the Hyatt Bridge, from 6:30- 7:15 a.m. Assembly point for the start is on Seven Mile Beach near Heminway’s restaurant, and the finish point is on the beach at Courtyard By Marriott.
