November may not seem like an obvious time to be frolicking in the sand on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, but we assure you, it is worth a try. Not only is the weather mild, the attitude on the island mellow and the traffic light, there are plenty of awesome things to do.
One activity that we are especially excited about is the 4th Annual Kaiser Realty ½ Marathon, 5k Run and 1 Mile Fun Run on November 26th. The Kaiser Realty ½ Marathon has become a true favorite, bringing in hundreds of runners and their families from across the nation over Thanksgiving weekend for this unique take on the 13.1 mile distance. The course has become famous for stretching over 2 different cities, going from Orange Beach into Gulf Shores through the Gulf State Park trail system and then finishing once again at the Orange Beach Sportsplex. A little over two miles of the course is run on the mixed terrain of the Gulf State Park Trail system, adding a little variety underfoot.
So celebrate Thanksgiving this year with a little post-feast running, and join hundreds of your newest friends in the 4th running of the Kaiser Realty ½ Marathon.
