Ocean City & Rehoboth Beach

Ocean City – Beach and Boardwalk

This is a classic beach and boardwalk run. Ocean City Beach goes for nearly 9 miles, and is generally wide, featuring firm, packed sand that’s good for running, especially near the water. The beach is a festive scene in summer, and can be crowded. The south end is the Ocean City Inlet, and the north end is at 141st St. near Fenwick Island and the Delaware border.

Another great part of this run is the Ocean City Boardwalk, which runs for 2.25 miles from 27th St., near the Jolly Roger Amusement Park, south to the Ocean City Inlet. Classic boardwalk restaurants, bars, shops and amusements. Great water views and a fun run — though in season it can be super crowded.
