The 30A 10K is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to serve the community by producing a world-class 10K and related events that raise money to benefit local charities while promoting health and fitness.

Now in its 13th year, the 30A 10K Thanksgiving Day Races have donated more than $870,000 to local charities, impacting the community directly. The mission is to raise funds for local non-profits and to promote the spirit of health and wellness. The charity partners for the 2024 race include: It Takes the Town, The Neurodiversity Resource of Northwest Florida, Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County, and Point Washington Medical Clinic.

Recognized as one of the top five turkey trots in America, the 30A 10K is known for its amazing flat and fast courses and over-the-top after-party.

With a 10K, 5K and 1 mile run/walk, there is a race distance for every ability.

All runners receive a Bella + Canvas custom super soft race shirt! The delicious free post-race breakfast for all runners is sure to kick off a great Thanksgiving Day weekend.

“It wouldn’t be the 30A 10K Thanksgiving Day race without him,” said co-race director Amy Stoyles. “One of my favorite parts about our race is seeing so many families out having fun together. Kids, teens, adults, and grandparents are all enjoying an activity together. Afterward, we love to have families hang out at the post-race breakfast and cheer on the rest of the runners.”

With that in mind, elementary through high school runners from area schools are invited to participate in the 5K and 10K races.

The race is expected to sell out soon so don’t delay. Early bird prices are available now and spots are limited. There is NO Race Day Registration, and runners are encouraged to register early and early registration will guarantee their t-shirt size.
