The Best Urban Beach Runs in the World

Favorite Runs by Theme

This is the Great Runs list of the best urban beach runs in the world. To qualify, the route has to be in or near a major city (i.e. Miami, San Diego), and not a beach town (i.e. Virginia Beach) or beach ‘destination’ (i.e. Cape Cod, Cocoa Beach). The beach must be at least two miles long and feature a beachside boardwalk/promenade and/or a ‘runnable’ beach (wide, with dependably firm sand). The list is in alphabetical order, by region.
