Event Description: A 50 mile running relay winding through scenic trails, along the ocean on A1A, over bridges….all with 5 of your best running buddies. Finish it off with a beachside celebration with food and drinks.
How does a relay race work? Create your team of 3-6 runners, assign each runner to what legs they will be running (each person runs twice), pile in a van/truck/wherever you can fit and start running. One person from each team runs at a time, the rest of you hang out in the van cheering them on, giving them water and getting to know each other real well. Then comes the hand off to the next runner. Repeat cheering, support, good times. Keep up this relay style running for 50 miles until your adventure concludes at the finish line party. Collect your hard earned hardware, have a drink, eat some food.
Start times will be assigned to teams based on average team pace. Teams must have all runners added to their team page online before their start time can be assigned.

What an awesome event! I've done countless relays, many Vermont city marathon relays, lake winnepesaukee relay, reach the beach.... Oceans 50 is #1 in course, organization, medals!!, directions. Just super and so much fun!! Thank you thank you.
This was my third Oceans50 and it was, for sure, a charm. Beginning with my first relay I've been telling folks this was my favorite race. When we needed two more teammates at the last minute this year I recruited the ladies by telling them this was the most fun race I run each year. They both now agree, too.
Please pass on my gratitude to all the staff and volunteers! I'm already brainstorming for next year's name and costumes because I'll be there! 😁
If any person on your team lives within Flagler County, your team will be required to provide one volunteer for the race. Sign up your volunteer online by October 26th. You also have the option to pay $50 and we'll provide a volunteer for you from our charity. If no one on your team lives in Flagler County you are exempt from providing a volunteer. Volunteers will be stationed at the start line, finish line and exchange points. Must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer (or with someone 18 years old or older). Assignments are first come first serve.
Please note! Volunteer shift times may change slightly after team start times are assigned.
