YAO RAY - 5K, 10K, 15K and Half Race Description

You Are Only ... Racing Against Yourself!

Live this self affirming motto and join us for an event, like all High Tide Runs, where it is up to you to set your own goals and determine what success looks like for you. We will be there at the finish line to help you celebrate. Live in the moment and don't forget that YAO RAY.

Boutique events that remove barriers and help individuals to connect and achieve their goals.

Signing up for one of our run/walk events won’t break the bank. Our low cost races are cozy and intimate, where you have a chance to get to know your fellow runner and your race director if you like. If you don’t want to chat or make new friend but prefer to put in your earbuds and get lost in the ocean breeze, that is total fine as well.

We will take care of you. Let us worry about the water and fuel you need to finish your distance so you can do you. You decide what feels right for you that day. 

You have the flexibility to sign up for any of at least four different distances at every one of our friendly gatherings. No hassle, no penalty fee involved if you want to change distances on race day. Small events means not having to get to the event hours before the start or sitting in a line of cars forever to get out of the parking lot.

High Tide Runs are a project of Mercury Events LLC. Mercury Events organizes larger events in throughout the Southwest United States.

Special incentives!

  • Sign up for 3 events at the same time, get 15% discount on the total
  • Buy 4 at one time, get 1 free.
  • 10 or more events in one calendar year, get a commemorative special edition HTR shirt

We will track you and let you know when you are close to qualifying for the 10 event and 15 event specials. Your job is to work on your fitness and enjoy the ride, leave the spreadsheets to us.

This is an open course.  There may be other pedestrians, runners, or cyclists on the beach path with you, please be courteous to them and do not spread out wide so that others can not get by you.

Running/walking with a stroller is encouraged but unfortunately, pets are not allowed. We have a 3:15 time limit for the half marathon.  If more time is needed, please email us at events@hightideruns.com for early start.

This is a small informal event.  Everyone will get a finishers medal that notes what distance you completed.  This is a smaller race that emphasizes a more personal satisfaction to racing. Thank you and look forward to seeing you out there! 

Results and photos will be posted here by the evening of the race day.  

Photos will be tagged and searchable by bib number so please wear your bib on your front in a way that it will be captured by our photographers.

Sorry but there are NO REFUNDS and NO DEFERRALS
