Lighthouse run to benefit lighthouse restoration

By Cyndi Sellers

The second annual Lighthouse Run, benefitting the restoration of the Sabine Pass Lighthouse, will be held this Saturday, Oct. 14, at Holly Beach.

The Cameron Preservation Alliance - Sabine Pass Lighthouse, Inc.‘s challenging 1- mile, 5K and 10K runs in the sand are designed to encourage fitness and health through opportunity in the local community while raising awareness of a historic local landmark.

The race will start and finish at the beach end of Barataria Blvd. The one mile walk/run will go to the west, while the 5K/10K runs will go to the east. Awards will be given in age groups for the 5K and 10K runs, and all 10K participants will receive a finisher medal. The first three finishers in the one mile will receive an award. The one mile will not be timed beyond the top three.

Registration on race day will be from 2-3:30 p.m., with cash or check accepted on race day. Entry fees are $40 for the 10K, $35 for the 5K, and $30 for the mile run/walk. Runners are asked to arrive 30 minutes before the start time of 4 p.m.

Non-runners can support the lighthouse by purchasing a $5 bumper sticker at the beach on race day or becoming a member of the Cameron Preservation Alliance. The $10 annual dues will include a bumper sticker or button.

More information about the lighthouse run can be found at the “Lighthouse Run at Holly Beach” Facebook page. The Sabine Pass Lighthouse- Cameron Preservation Alliance page has photos, video and information on the lighthouse itself.
