The Seaside Neighborhood School is situated in the heart of 30A and the annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K is this public charter’s lifeblood.
Funding from the race energizes the school and empowers participation in unique elective classes such as gardening, music, culinary and fine arts, an award winning robotics program, advanced placement classes as well as career-readiness industry certification courses.

Taste of the Race with Chef Emeril Lagasse marks the official start of the three-day race weekend celebration. The annual culinary event takes place on Friday, February 28 at the Seaside Lyceum, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, with a VIP reception from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.

Chef Emeril Lagasse is live and in-person for the event, and guests enjoy cuisine from Emeril’s restaurants, along with some of the Gulf Coast’s top chefs and restaurants such as Great Southern Cafe and The Bay. Fine wine, craft spirits and local brews from the Grayton Beer Company will pair perfectly with the chefs’ preparations.  The outdoor festivities are held rain or shine in a heated tent where guests can also get the first peak and beginning bidding on items at the highly-anticipated silent auction benefiting the Seaside School. Bidding will take place throughout the weekend at all events!
