Newsflash: It's hot in Florida in the summer.
The good news is, we know how to take care of people in the heat.
Join us for Burn Your Half Off, the Florida edition, on Saturday, June 13th. One mile, 5K, 10K, and half marathon. The course will start and finish at Baseline Greenway Park, utilizing a one(ish) mile paved loop. Yes, that means 12 laps for the half marathon, but it also means that hydration, ice, banana smoothies, sunscreen, fruit, and salty snacks will all never be more than one mile away. We'll have ice water stationed halfway through the loop for dunking towels and hats into, and kiddie pools of ice water if you need to cool off in a hurry.
Our races are super low-key and non-competitive; we'd prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. We like to say it's more like a family picnic with some running involved as opposed to a typical race. The pressure is off. We're here to get you to the finish line! There is a 4 hour time limit for all distances. Walkers are welcome!
Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag (technical fabric hat or visor for 10K or half marathon, Awesomesauce sunglasses for the 5K and one mile fun run), finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, snacks and post-race food.
Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won't be a shirt! We think there are enough races that give our shirts, and it's so hard to please everyone with the cut and color and style. However, as is tradition with this race since we've been holding it in Tennessee, shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag with the sugar skull logo will be available for pre-order and purchase on race day.
As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change based on number of participants. The races will go on rain or shine, but we do not run if there is lightning or dangerous weather conditions.
It will be HOT on race day. It will be HUMID on race day. It is YOUR responsibility to take care of yourself in the climactic conditions. If, at any time, the race director or assistant race director determine that it would be unsafe for you to continue, you will be withdrawn from the race. When signing up for this race, you agree to follow ALL instructions given to you by the race director. We do give credit for distance covered, so if things don't go so well, you can change race distances mid-race to something shorter and still earn a medal and a finish time.
