MONDAY, JULY 1, 2013

Gentlemen, start your engines!  Monday, July 1, 2013 is the official race day for Million Dollar Run 2013 at Surfside Beach Restaurant & Bar.

As in 2012, the race will consist of two boat classes continuing to broaden the range of those wishing to compete in Million Dollar Run 2013.  The Circuit Class is open to experienced captains and medium performance crafts and the Offshore Class is designed for the most experience captains and high performance crafts. 

For the poker run element of the race, “cards” are chosen randomly before, during and after the race to form a full, five-card hand for each captain at the race’s conclusion.

This year’s race day will also feature “Thunder Run,” which is a jet ski race using the same track as the main race.

Everyone is welcome to join this free, family-friendly event.  VIBE 98.9FM and SPIN 94.9FM will be providing entertainment allday, and food and drinks will be on sale.
