Quarter Marathon (6.55 Miles) USATF Certified Course # FL17059TY
5K USATF Certified Course # FL17058TY

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 on Friday, October 12, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, at the Babe James Community Center, 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.

Runners will be awarded finisher's medals for both races.

Only preregistered runners are guaranteed to receive an event tech shirt.

Clancy's Cantina will be providing complimentary drink tokens and breakfast burritos to all runners.
