About This Activity

The Honeymoon Half Marathon is going to be one of the most attended races of the year! We hope to make you a part of our exciting and enthusiastic team known for making races more enjoyable because of YOU!


Honeymoon Half Marathon Saturday, November 8, 2014, 5 a.m. until noon

Benefit: This race is launched in cooperation with the DEP to drive attendance to Florida’s 171 state parks and trail ways during off peak seasons to increase the awareness of preserving our park lands



Honeymoon Half Marathon Volunteer Positions Open: Each position requires online registration to ensure you get the position that best fits your will to serve. There is a $1 fee which covers your waiver and insurance on event day.  All volunteers are required to bring a small cooler with items that will make you comfortable on race day.  We encourage small collapsible stool or chair, sunscreen, a hat or sun visor, sunglasses, a change of clothes for weather changes, enough liquid to keep you hydrated (no alcohol is permitted), and some easy snacks. If you need to leave your position and it is not an immediate emergency please text or call your team leader so that they can put another person in your place.  After you complete your role, at the end of the race, all volunteers are entitled to free race food, beer, and refreshments with a free concert by the Black Honkeys!


Island Teams: The following 6 teams of volunteers will be positioned in one set location of the island throughout the race along the course. You will not have to move around to different positions as your team will be spread out throughout the mile you represent on the course.  All Island Team Volunteers will wear your best team color! Get creative and see how much of your color you can show including hats, boas, and funky accessories.  Arrive at 5 a.m. and come to the Osprey Parking lot on the north end of Honeymoon Island for your team meeting. All team meetings will take place at 5:45 a.m. in front of the stage. Please listen for announcements and meet your team by the color you have chosen.  Each team has a designated emcee. Your role on race morning is to get the runners to remember your team and vote YOU (by color of team) as the most enthusiastic or encouraging on the course when we announce our winning team at the post race concert at the finish line. The team that gets awarded the most encouraging will receive an additional $250 scholarship for the team they are representing in your service.
