Run through the beautiful, undeveloped sand dunes of Gulf Islands National Seashore, the Pensacola Beach Run Half Marathon and 5K/10K is one of the premier destination road races in the South! The Half Marathon starts at 7:30 AM and is a run only event. We will not accept walker registrations and there will be no awards category for walkers. The 5K/10K starts at 8:00 AM, has a walkers division, and as always is a “pick your distance” event! This means you don’t have to pick which race to run until out on the course!! All courses will be reopened to vehicular traffic at 10:30 AM
All three of our PR courses, featuring essentially zero elevation changes, start in the heart of Pensacola Beach at the Casino Beach Parking Lot, wind past all of our famous bars and restaurants, and out through several neighborhoods of charming beach houses. The half marathon course stretches all the way out to the beginnings of the Gulf Island National Seashore, where your only company besides your fellow runners will be the waves and beautiful, undeveloped sand dunes (plus our enthusiastic volunteers). There will be water stops, timing mats, and cheering volunteers in strategic locations out on all three courses!
Take advantage of discounted rates ($99/night sound side and $109/night gulf side) at our Host Hotel, the Holiday Inn Resort, which is located a short walk to the start/finish line, by booking using the code “PBR!!”
Packet Pickup/Late Registration will occur at our Host Hotel, the Holiday Inn Resort, from 4:00 PM until 7:30 PM the night before the race. There is NO race day registration for this event, though you can pick up your packet on race day from 6:00 AM until 7:00 AM (half marathon) or 7:30 AM (5K/10K) at the Vince Whibbs Bus, which will be parked in front of the Casino Beach Pavilion.
After the race, be sure to stop by the Sandshaker and unwind with some food and beverages with your fellow runners at our after party!
