Course Details
These are the official sporting events of the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary. This is the only time this event will occur and will be your only opportunity to run on NASA's Kennedy Space Center.

Enjoy running on NASA's property with breathtaking water and wildlife views from the NASA Causeway & the Mammoth Vehicle Assembly Building in the distance.

If the 11K distance is not for you, or a 13:00 min/mile is too fast, fret not! We've added the 5K, PERFECT for the shorter distance runners and walkers!

Both races starts on Vectorspace blvd near the original astronauts hall of fame and merge onto the NASA causeway where runners will follow an out and back riverfront course with great water views, wildlife and the Vehicle Assembly building in the distance.
