Step into a world where coastal serenity and the pounding waves of the sea harmonize with the rhythmic beat of your heart. 
At High Tide Runs, we offer you an exhilarating experience that goes beyond a mere event; it's a movement, a community of passionate runners who share a love for the sport and a deep appreciation for the ocean's tranquility.
As a dedicated runner, you already know the thrill of the race, the joy of crossing the finish line, and the escape that running brings. Now, imagine all of this set against the breathtaking backdrop of the endless ocean horizon.
At High Tide Runs, we believe in offering an extraordinary experience without extravagant costs. We're not about glitz and glamor; we're about substance and connection.
 Our mission is to make running accessible to all and celebrate the journey rather than the spectacle.
Sign up for three events simultaneously and enjoy a generous 15% discount on the total cost. It's an opportunity to elevate your High Tide Runs experience while being fiscally savvy.
But why stop there? As you embrace the thrill of the tides, set ambitious goals on your calendar. Complete 10 or more events within a single year, and you'll earn an exclusive, limited-edition HTR shirt—a badge of honor that signifies your unwavering dedication. For the truly unstoppable souls who conquer 15 or more events in a year, the rewards are even grander: your entry to another event becomes our gift to you, a testament to your endurance and commitment.
Who's invited to our events? Everyone! 
High Tide Runs embraces a true spirit of inclusion. Our races are a tapestry of individuals, woven together by their passion for movement. Age, speed, and experience don't matter; if you're eager to be part of the journey, you're already one of us.
