    Did the 5K in 2020

    As my first time participated in a marathon, I enjoyed it a lot. The people were friendly, the view was good, there was food truck and FREE BEER.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The best race after Miami Marathon.
  • Did the Marathon in 2019

    It's a good race, well-organized and the scenery is beautiful. I was disappointed this year when we approached atop Eau Gallie bridge and did not see the grand piano with the famous pianist. We cannot blame the race organizer because weather condition on race day was horrible; the pianist would have been soaked and blown away. There is nothing that they could do about the weather. However, one complaint I have is the race photos not being available, it has been three days since the race. Daytona Half Marathon took place on the same day and race photos were immediately available after the race (on the same day) there.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A fabulous race on a beautiful course. However, a fellow runner finishing just a minute behind me complained about almost being trumpled at the finish line by racing mascots. I am not sure mascots added much to the experience, definitely not worth stumbling over.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    This was my 4th yr doing this race. I have done the half,full,and the 5k. I belong to a local tri team called Newwave racing team. We do our best to promote wellness and happiness and just compassion for sport. This race as a whole has never let me down. It is a very fun race. All the sponcers at the expo were awesome. Always leave with so new stuff...(even if I dont need it) If you are looking for a cool time please check it out....
