Run/walk a safe open course during dead low tide on super hard packed dry sand.

Your NEVER QUIT 5k morning will start with a powerful speech, prayer, we will all recite our Constitutional oath, sing “God Bless the USA and the National Anthem.  Then, get ready for an amazing, healthy and very patriotic 5K run/walk race and a great day for everyone!

The 5K course is an out and back, starting in front of the Four Points Sheraton hotel. Run/Walk along the beautiful, dry, hard-packed, low tide Jacksonville Beach sand down to 25th Ave South and then return back to the Finish Line in front of the Jacksonville Beach Seawalk Pavilion for the world’s largest beach run. This is a perfect, wide-open, safe beach course for running.

As soon as you cross the finish line, you will be presented with one of the largest, heaviest and most striking 3D NEVER QUIT finisher medal ever created in the history of running, and now being presented at NEVER QUIT.  See the 2017 3D Eagle medal here.

When you select a Never Quit Finisher Necklace during online registration, after you finish your run/walk, head up to the Sea Walk Pavilion where you will be greeted by a U.S. Military Service Member at the Finisher Necklace area.  Here you will be presented with the $300 valued, handmade and the most striking finisher necklace ever presented at any run.

If you selected a necklace during online registration, your race bib will be marked as such so you can be presented with your $300 valued Finisher necklace. You can also run/walk and get the necklace as a perfect gift for someone you will Never Quit for.

If you can not make a Never Quit event, enter the Never Quit Virtual Run where we will mail you the same items as your friends and family will receive on race day, and you can run anywhere in the world, the distance you want, when you want!

Click the link to see the perfect low tides that we will all be able to enjoy to give you a perfect hard packed beach to run on.  The sand is flat and almost like concrete and is not soft sand.  Jacksonville is one of the only unique places in the United States that has this hard-packed flat sand at hundreds of yards wide to run on, so it will be an amazing experience.  See tides here:  Jacksonville Beach, Florida: Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 8 am
