About This Event
The Sand Crab is a great way to get a little exercise under the stars on a beautiful Galveston Beach at night, get fed, have a few beers by a bon fire while listening to great music with other runners on a summer night. Both races will be chip timed and will start at 9PM. This 5K run is very walker friendly with a 2hr cut off. The 10K is walkable but will share the 2 hr cut off. 10K runners must be at the 3.1 mile turnaround within 1 hour. The 5K will also share the 2 hr cutoff. The Sand Crab will start on beautiful Porretto Beach and run east for 3.1 or 1.55 miles (depending on the event) and turn and head back to the finish. The course will be lit with glow sticks and tiki torches. Runners are required to run with a flashlight or head lamp. There will be 2 watertops with HEB Quench and water hit 2X ea for the 10K and 1 hit 2X for the 5K. After finishing runners will receive bbq with all the fixins and cold cerveza for those of age. Extra BBQ plates available for $10 (this is a good deal).
