Course Time Limits
We require that runners and walkers be properly prepared and trained to finish the Halfathon within 4 hours (18 minute/mile pace). Please note that 4 hours after the start, course support ((i.e. aid/water stations, volunteers, photographers, ambulance, course marshals, clocks, etc.) is not guaranteed. The 5k runners and walkers should be finished within the 4 hour time limit for the halfathon.
Course HighlightsBoth races are staged entirely in Fort De Soto Park, recognized as one of the best beaches in the nation. The course features a loop for the first 3.1 miles of the race, bringing athletes back through the start line. The rest of the course is an extremely flat, out-and-back tour of Fort De Soto Park, mostly on paved recreational trails. With a start time about 40 minutes before sunrise to avoid warm weather, the first portion of the race will take place in the dawn. Sunrise should be directly ahead of our athletes before the turn-around at East Beach.
All our races are sanctioned and insured through USATF for runners, joggers, and walkers ONLY. Strollers, skaters, skateboards and bicycles are NOT allowed on the course during our races.
Both courses have been precisely measured and documentation provided according to USATF requirements, certifying our courses as accurately measured.
All official results will be based on “Gun Time” as per USATF rules. Chip times will be posted for our athletes’ review, but NOT used for scoring.
