Calling all runners who are up for a challenge – the St. Augustine Half Marathon is back in November! The Half Marathon starts in downtown St. Augustine, races along the bayfront, and travels over the Bridge of Lions and through the Island. If a Half Marathon isn’t quite your speed, there is also a 10K, a 5K, and a Kids Race (which happens on November 10). So strap on your running shoes and get ready to race!
The Half Marathon will take place on Sunday, November 11 starting at 6:45am at Francis Field. The 10K will begin shortly afterward at 6:50am. The 5K will begin at 6:55am. The award ceremony for all three races will happen at Francis Field at 9:30am.
There will also be a Kids Fun Race at the events on November 10. It will be a lap around Francis Field beginning at 10am.
THE EXPO AND FAMILY FITNESS DAY
In addition to the race, the St. Augustine Expo will be the center of attraction for this event during its two days of exhibition. It will begin on Saturday, November 10 at 9am at Francis Field. For the athletes, package pick-up will take place at this same location. Athletes and fans can buy the latest gear and equipment at discounted prices along with gathering the most recent information on products in the sports industry. Whether it would be running shoes or accessories, you can buy everything you need at the St. Augustine Expo.
There will also be plenty of fun activities for families on Saturday. Family-friendly yoga instruction will begin at 11am, and yoga for runners will start at 1pm.
The course of the Half Marathon will begin on Riberia Street, wind its way through downtown, cross over the Bridge of Lions, follow along A1A and onto 312, then make its way back to Francis Field. There will be water stations throughout the course.
