Running a race on the beach is a fairly rare occurrence, and running one at night happens even less frequently. Throw in a full moon, and all the makings of a unique event line up for next week’s Galveston Sand Crab 5K and 10K on Aug. 17.

The Sand Crab course follows the shore line from Apffel Park on the eastern tip of Galveston Island, heading toward Stewart Beach before making a turnaround at the 1.55-mile point for the 5K, or 3.1-mile marker for the 10K distance. The course is marked and lit by red lights, and runners are required to carry flashlights or wear headlamps to light their path.
