About This Activity
Welcome to the 1st Annual Islamorada Half Marathon & 10K in the beautiful Florida Keys! We are excited to bring this tropical road race to one of the most sought after destinations in the U.S. Islamorada, known as the "Sportfishing Capital of the World" is located just 1.5 hours south of Miami (2 hours from Ft. Lauderdale) and 80 miles to Key West. On December 13th, 2015, the Islamorada Resort Company will be hosting this great event at their oceanfront resort, the Postcard Inn (also known as Holiday Isle). Whether its diving, fishing, or drinks at sunset, Islamorada is a spot like no other. Now, with our official half marathon and 10K, we are adding running as a "thing to do" and hope you join us and treat yourself to a wonderful vacation.
Event details and schedule
The 13.1 is a gorgeous course that starts just south of Holiday Isle at the top of the Whale Harbor Bridge. As you make your way through the Islamorada Village, past all of the unique shops, boutiques and restaurants, you will then move onto the walk/bike path and begin to run towards the Lower Matecumbe area. With stunning views of the ocean on both sides, you will go over a few small bridges and turn around just past the Indian Fill area before Robbie’s Marina. Back on the path, heading north, you will get back to Upper Matecumbe and turn onto the Old Road. The Old Road will end just short of the Whale Harbor Bridge where you will head back into the Postcard Inn/Holiday Isle resort for an unbelievable beach finish.
The 10K course is similar, however, the turn around will approximately 3+ miles out from the start/finish.
The day(s) leading into the race as well as immediately following the race, be prepared for some fun. We’ll be celebrating with live music on the beach and in the “World Famous Tiki Bar” the entire time. Every runner will enjoy a free Rumrunner or beer after the race. We’ll be providing plenty of post race snacks and the resort will have plenty more goodies to choose from.
WHERE TO STAY.
The Islamorada Resort Company has four resorts right on the island and will be providing discounts to our runners. The Postcard Inn is our most famous property which is directly onsite and where all event activities take place as well as multiple bars and restaurants for you to enjoy. Another sister property, Pelican Cove, is right next door and easy to walk to. Our other two properties, Amara Cay and La Siesta, also have wonderful accommodations and we will be providing shuttle service to and from the event for easy access.
All pre-registered runners will be receiving a shirt for the event (until otherwise noted closer to the event). We haven’t designed it yet, but we promise it will be one that you will love wearing and showing off to all your jealous friends.
