Surfing Madonna 15K


The Surfing Madonna Beach Run is on Sunday, November 5, 2017 and the course is all on the hard-packed sand passing by famous local beaches, such as Beacon’s, Ponto, Swami’s and Moonlight Beach. It begins at 2pm (low tide) at the Moonlight Beach on the sand. This 15K offers the MOST BEAUTIFUL views with massive cliffs, crashing waves, playful marine life, and tons of course support and entertainment. 2017 is a unique year because the Surfing Madonna Run is also going for a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for “Largest Beach Run”.

So, you can be a Challenger Series Runner AND a World Record Holder! How cool is that?!?!
