Almost 900 runners - a record - competed in the 2013 Classics by the Sea races Dec. 14 at Carlin Park along the Jupiter beachfront. The event featured a Mile Children's Run, 5K and 10K races. Many participants brought toys for the Toys For Tots program. Members of the Marine Corps were on hand to accept the gifts. Each participant received a medal and overall and age group winners took home crystal trophies. The race was directed by Dianne Lavado and produced by the Palm Beach Roadrunners.
