On your mark…get set…go! Team Magic is partnering with the Alabama Gulf Coast Sports Commission to bring a new event to the Alabama Gulf Coast: the Kaiser Realty Coastal 1/2 Marathon and 5K Run. On Saturday, November 29, runners from around the country will assemble at the Orange Beach Sportsplex before embarking on the 1/2 Marathon or 5K Run. More than 500 runners are expected to participate in the inaugural event. Team Magic will be presenting over $5000 in prizes to the winners of each event.
The race begins at the Orange Beach Sportsplex, located at 4385 William Silvers Pkwy, just off Canal Road in Orange Beach, AL. Winding through the paved, Hugh Branyon back-country trail, the 1/2 Marathon will continue along the beach road before returning to the Sportsplex. The 5K Run will take place exclusively on the paved back-country trail in the Gulf State Park.
Packet pick-up and late registration runs from 3:00-6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 28 and will resume from 6:30-7:30 a.m. on Saturday. The 1/2 Marathon begins at 8:00 a.m. with the 5K Run beginning 15 minutes later.
At the conclusion of the races, a post-race party will feature beer and food samplings from local restaurants.
