The Seaside School Foundation recently opened registration for the annual Seaside Half Marathon and 5K event which will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2013.

Registration will be limited to 2,800 runners for the half marathon and 900 participants for the 5K.

The race weekend will kick off on March 1, 2013 with a signature event: An Evening for Education Under the Stars at Caliza Pool in Alys Beach. Events will go through the weekend with a special Expo of exhibits and sponsors on Saturday, March 2 and concluding with the half marathon and 5K Run on Sunday, March 3.
