Apollo 11k & Saturn 5k - Anniversary Races routes

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.

    Who can get me a medal from the run? Too cool!

    S

    Hi there! I'm afraid you have to take part in the run before you can get a medal. If you took part and missed out on a medal then send an email over to [email protected] and one of the team will be able to sort you out :)

  • Did the Apollo 11K in 2019

    Loved having ice at the water stations! We definitely needed it. The start was great with the Apollo countdown. Music was awesome, plenty of beer and pizza!
  • Did the Apollo 11K in 2019

    It was a great race especially because it was one of those special races that I just had to do because I live on the Space Coast. The shirts and finisher medals were awesome. The course was beautiful but it was way too hot. It could have started earlier to help beat the heat. The race was delayed due to water station not being fully manned. Once the race started though I thought the water stations were well manned and worked well.

    Very friendly and organized environment. Flat running can be boring but the views and sunrise was spectacular. Be prepared for the awards to not take place until close to 9am. Only real change would be to have the awards in a shady area.

    Great race, enjoyed the presentation, the medal and of course the pizza and beer where a big hit! Water Stops were sufficient, plenty of volunteers to assist with the water. Big thanks to all the Volunteers who made it a great race. 5 star!
