Event details and schedule
December 9th: The Islander Resort, a Guy Harvey Outpost presents the Beach N' Beer Mile. Their oceanfront acreage is a spot like no other. We've created a 1-mile beachfront course that has 4 beer stops! This will be one unforgettable event!
Also at The Islander Resort on December 9th will be packet pick up for all the races, including the half marathon and 10K on December 10th.
December 10th: Islamorada Half Marathon and 10K at the Islander Resort (new this year!). This 13.1 is a gorgeous course that starts at the Islander Resort and runs south on the old road. As you make your way to the end of the old road just south of Whale Harbor Bridge, you will turn south 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 bring out back onto the Islander Resort property for an epic oceanfront 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.
