Quarter Marathon (6.55 Miles) USATF Certified Course # FL16021TY
5K USATF Certified Course # FL16020TY

The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.

Packet pick up is available on Thursday, December 1, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM or on Friday, December 2, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at the Parks and Recreation Department, 201 N. Myrtle Ave., New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168. It is also available on race day, beginning at 6:45 AM, at the race site.

Awards to follow the race inside the civic left. Quarter Marathon and 5K runners may receive awards in the following categories: Overall, Masters, Grandmasters, and the top three finishers in 14 categories for Male and 14 categories for Female.

Only preregistered runners are guaranteed to receive a long sleeve T-Shirt.

The race will be professionally timed and scored by RaceSmith, Inc. The race will be timed using disposable, electronic tags attached to the bib number. Please wear your bib number to the front, pinned at all four corners, visible, and unaltered. Printed results will be posted at the race site and live online during the race at www.RaceSmith.com
