5k 2014 Results

Ready, set, help! More than 400 runners of all ages raced to the end of summer at the third annual Alys Beach 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run.

The annual event is sponsored by The Alys Foundation, which also produces the 30A Wine Festival (March 6-8, 2015) and Digital Graffiti (June 4-6, 2015).

The 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run became town tours of sorts leading runners down roadways, pathways and nature trails on a sunny late summer morning throughout the beautiful community of Alys Beach in South Walton.

After the races, racers relaxed at a post-race awards party featuring Grayton Beer, Vivo Spa Salon, Piper’s and 30A Pop Stop including a raffle and music by Shane from Rock the House. Little racers cooled off in the Fountain and chilled on the grass in the Amphitheater. Many returned later in the evening to enjoy a live concert and fireworks display.

This year’s race was held in honor of Jon Starkey, who is the son of an Alys Beach homeowner, who has autism. Starkey, 40, designed the artwork showcased on the official race t-shirts.

This event was made possible for The Alys Foundation with generous support from all our sponsors; including, EBSCO Industries, Inc., Comer Companies, LLC, the Starkey Family, the Frist Family and Galvas Construction, Inc.

Proceeds from the event raised $60,000. The Alys Foundation provided $20,000 each in the name of the Starkey Family to Autism Society Emerald Coast, Autism Society Georgia and Autism Society of America, the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization.

“It is such a privilege and an honor to be a part of something special where so many people are pulling together for a common cause. A very deep thank you to everyone who made it possible,” said Jason L. Comer, Director of The Alys Foundation.

3rd Annual 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run

Benefiting The Autism Society

The 3rd Annual 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run returns to the beautiful resort town of Alys Beach August 31, 2014.  Located along HWY 30A, the course winds through the streets of Alys Beach and into the Nature Trail.  The event also features an oversized obstacle course for kids of all ages and will end with music from Shane from Rock the House, food, beverages, and the award ceremony in the Amphitheatre.  The price to participate in the certified 5K is $35 and the 1 Mile Fun Run is $15 (kids 12 and younger only, please).  Event proceeds will benefit the Autism Society.


The Autism Society is the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization.  The organization helps to improve the lives of all affected by Autism by increasing public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum.  The Autism Society also spends time advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and provides the latest information regarding treatment, education, research, and advocacy.


The Alys Foundation was established to provide funding for the purpose of sustaining the long-term community values of Alys Beach. The funds from The Alys Foundation are used to enhance the experiences of our families and to preserve and enhance the quality of life of our community members. Our primary focus is the town of Alys Beach, but we will also focus our initiatives in the Walton County community at large.

The Alys Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to support the long-term community values of the town. Funds can be used to finance community, environmental, cultural and educational programs at Alys Beach as well as to help other nonprofit organizations in the greater Walton County community.


One of the most beautiful new towns in the world, Alys Beach is located on Scenic Highway 30A in Florida’s panhandle, along what The New York Times said “may be the best beach in the continental U.S.” The resort town’s extraordinary architectural vision drew inspirations from both Bermuda and the family courtyard homes of Antigua, Guatemala. When complete, Alys Beach will be home to 900 villas and courtyard homes, as well as restaurants, parks, shops and other resort amenities. Alys Beach is the first Fortified…for Safer Living® community in the world, and all homes are built to Florida’s Green Home Designation Standard.
