Upcoming Running Events on the Gulf Coast
Posted on February 22, 2016
Have you recently purchased Gulf Coast real estate and made the beach your home? Well, if you love to run, we have several events you should get out and enjoy. Not only are they fun, they are sure to help your new town feel like home!
The first running event coming up is the Gulf Coast Half Marathon taking place on February 28, 2016 at 7AM. The event is hosted by LuLu’s restaurant, so it’s sure to be a blast. The event will begin there, follow a fun course and end just 50 yards away from where it starts, after 13.1 miles, of course. Not a runner? That’s okay. Walkers are welcome, too. Be sure to stay on for the Nearly World Famous Post Race Party hosted by LuLu’s, which will kick off as soon as the first runner crosses the finish line.
Can’t make this half marathon? Consider running the Pensacola Beach version on April 10, 2016 hosted by Running Wild. Also a walker friendly course, the race will begin at Casino Beach and the post race party will take place at Flounder’s in this case.
Speaking of Pensacola, if you have recently purchased real estate on Pensacola Beach or the surrounding area, consider exploring downtown via the McGuire’s 5K Prediction Run. Now it’s 39th year, this run asks participants to predict how long it will take them to complete the certified 5K course through town. Those who come closest to their predicted time, without the used of timing devices, win! That run will take place at 9AM on March 12, 2016 and registration is open. No matter the location or distance, we hope you have a great run along the Gulf Coast.
