Each year, more than 4,000 runners converge on beautiful South Walton County, Florida, to participate in the annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K Run presented by Vera Bradley. Thanks to generous sponsors, more than 300 enthusiastic volunteers and dedicated runners, this pinnacle event, organized by the Seaside School Foundation, enhances the quality of education in the community. The funds raised in this weekend-long event, bridge the gap between state funding and educational excellence. The Race helps fund elective classes in gardening, music, art, technology, dance, yearbook, an award-winning robotics program and smaller math and English classes.
