Tijuana Flats Summer Beach Run
JTC Running is pleased to present the Summer Beach Run. The first Summer Beach Run was held in 1965 when the Beatles were taking the US by storm. Long hair with long sideburns was the rage, and we had not yet put a man on the moon.
The first event consisted of 25 to 30 runners who were taken by truck to the starting line at Hannah Park. There were only men running the race that year. Most were high school cross country runners getting ready for the season. The race in those days was a straight shot down the beach to the Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard Station. The Seawalk Pavilion would not be built for another 40 years. In 2019 over 1,500 runners and walkers celebrated the 55th running of the event.
