What to Wear? 

A Costume! If not going for the costume then wear a t-shirt and shorts. You will be climbing and jumping and crawling and sweating...so make sure there are no wardrobe malfunctions. (there will be photographers there!) Don't wear anything that you are afraid to damage, tear, stain, stretch. Shoes should definitely be worn. Gloves perhaps, but they will probably get wet and soggy. SUNSCREEN IS A MUST!

What to Bring?

A sense of humor! Actually, a beach towel, change of clothes, some flip flops, sunglasses for later.
There will not be a bag check available so either have your crew/friend hold your stuff or leave it in your car/house.

Runner Tips

Shoes!  Unless you have tough feet and train on the beach normally, you may need to strongly consider wearing shoes!  Shells and general debris on the course are one reason. The temp of the sand especially for the 5 Milers.....is another reason......the sand could be very hot!
