 SUMMER BEACH RUNSSummer Beach RunsKids Summer Beach Runs are held every Tuesday at 6:30 PM on incredible Siesta Beach for ten consecutive weeks. A more serious run for adults and others usually follows at 7 PM. The runs are sponsored by the Manasota Track Club and each weeks run is just a little different. They begin in June and end in August. If you’ve never joined the hundreds who participate, you’re just not cool. And so sorry for you, you’re going to have to wait until June 2015 to be cool again.
