Start and finish at East Beach in Apfel Park. Run entirely on sand, the Sand Crab is a great way to get a little exercise under the stars on a beautiful Galveston Beach at night and have a few beers and other refreshments while listening to great music with other runners on a summer night. All races are chip timed including the Kid’s Mile. The Kid’s Mile will start at 8 pm. Parents are welcome to run with kids free of charge. The 5K/10K will start at 8:30PM. The 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 Sand Crab starts on beautiful East Beach and runs west for 3.1 or 1.55 miles (depending on the event). Then turns back to the finish. The course is lit with led lights. Runners are required to run with a flashlight or head lamp. There are 2 watertops with sports drink and water hit 2X ea for the 10K and 1 hit 2X for the 5K.
