The run consists of a 15K and a 5K depending on your preference. If you choose to run the 15K, then you are certainly treating yourself to some of the best views around! Begin in Downtown Pensacola and wind your way through the historic district and picturesque Bayfront Parkway. Then, run over the Pensacola Bay Bridge to make your way into Gulf Breeze and finally onto Pensacola Beach. Or, choose the 5K and make your way through Gulf Breeze to Pensacola Beach onto Santa Rosa Island and the National Seashore.
The race expo and packet pickup take place at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Gulf Front Conference Center on January 31st from 3-7 PM, and February 1st from 12-7 PM. Pick up your packet and browse over 30 vendor booths! In addition, you’ll also score a pre-race dinner provided by Hemingway’s. The Pensacola Beach restaurant is offering complimentary meals for participants. Guests can also enjoy a meal for just $5 at the door.

We’re offering 15% off any Pensacola Beach, Florida vacation rental when you stay between January 31 and February 9. We have tons of incredible options all across the beach; check out our inventory on Pensacola Beach here! We’re big fans of Emerald Isle on Pensacola Beach; this luxury high-rise condo, pictured above, rests right on the sugar white sands. Sleeping anywhere from 4-8 guests in 2-3 bedroom vacation rentals, you’ll have a fabulous time relaxing before and after the race. Stretch out on your private balcony as you breathe in the fresh air or head down to the beach and rest your tired toes in the sand.
