Length– A jetty, a cliff, a river mouth…can shorten the length of the beach and be a big disappointment for covering miles that you were hoping for. Try to find a beach that has at least a mile of uninterrupted shoreline.

Slant– Cambered or crowned beach front can be unsuitable and cause injury to ones self trying to run distances on it.  The flatter the better.

Surface– Be sure to wear proper footwear.  Some beaches are scattered with broken shells and rocks that can be painful to run on.
