Sponsors are being sought for the race, with gold ($300), silver ($200) and bronze ($100) levels available. The race will take place at 10 a.m. March 28, rain or shine. Registration will be from 8:50 to 9:50 a.m. Pre-registration is $22 online at seashorestriders.com, and same-day registration is $25. Applications are available at seashorestriders.com.
