Course Highlights

The Halfathon, 10K and 5K courses start at North Beach and are pure out-and-back 13.1 mile, 6.2 and 3.1 mile tours of Ft. De Soto Park run on paved trails and access roads. You will NOT be running on the sand.

These are extremely flat and fast courses with no bridges, overpasses, or discernible inclines. They are accurately measured and will be certified by the USATF.

Fort De Soto Park has been named “America’s Top Beach” by TripAdvisor several times over the years citing a “spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a laid-back atmosphere.”
