Whether you’re a highly skilled athlete or are just looking for something new to try, this outdoor adventure may be the one you’ve been looking for.

A Jailbreak Beach Escape 5K course will be held on South Padre Island on Saturday, May 22.

According to event organizers, the event has become a tradition for the Island over the past few years.

“Just a day at the beach,” event organizers stated. “The perfect excuse to get the girls/guys together for a Texas beach road trip.”

The off the grid adventure run covers three to four miles of journeying through 16 to 20 sandy, wet and fun obstacles.

Anyone 14 and older is able to compete. Participants are able to sign up for the event in teams of two to four people.

The event will start and finish at Clayton’s Beach Bar and Grill, located at 6900 Padre Blvd.

Run times will be held at 8:30, 9, 10 and 10:30 a.m.

Packet pick up will open at 7:30 a.m. at Clayton’s. Participants are advised to arrive 30 minutes prior to their wave time.

According to event organizers, the course design and obstacle engineering is completed with racer safety being the paramount goal.

Participants have the option of going around any obstacle they don’t feel comfortable doing.

“Jailbreak Racing Events takes great pride in assuring the safety and integrity of the Jailbreak Race,” event organizers stated. “Qualified emergency workers are stationed throughout the race course to insure the safety of every contestant.”

Participants will receive a medal, T-shirt and one beer for those who are 21 and older.

According to event organizers, Jailbreak Beach Escape will be held rain or shine.

“Because of the logistics of planning for a race of this size, we cannot offer refunds for any reason, other than military deployment with proof of paperwork,” the event’s website states. “In the event that weather creates an unsafe environment for participants, Jailbreak Race Events will postpone the event for a few hours or up to a few weeks.”

Those that are unable to run during the new time, will be eligible to transfer their registration to another Jailbreak event, but will not be eligible for a refund.
