The Pensacola Beach Run Half Marathon & 10k/5k, a Pensacola Runners Association Event, is one of the premier destination road races in the Southeast and the perfect way to kick off your New Year Resolution. The original half marathon on Pensacola Beach, the event features a half marathon and a “pick your distance” 10k/5k, meaning participants do not have to decide whether to run the 10k or the 5k until they are out on the course!
