August usually brings one of the area’s most unique races, the Galveston Sand Crab 5K and 10K. Many local runners looked forward to it each year because it combined two elements rare in races, running on the sand and running at night.

This year, not surprisingly, the race has been canceled. Even without the race, it’s possible to enjoy a nighttime run; it just takes a little more planning.
