THE RUN & WALK
Join us for an island run through historic Boca Grande. Start your run at the Boca Grande Community Center (on the National Register of Historic Places), see beautiful views of Charlotte Harbor, past the famous Gasparilla Inn, along scenic Gilchrist Avenue (lined with palm trees) and finishes on Banyan Street (named for the very large trees that line both sides of the street). Refreshments will be available during the post race activities at the Community Center.
The grand prize is a two person, two night accommodations including meals and golf at the historic Gasparilla Inn and Club. The grand prize is valued at $1500. Lots of door prizes will be given away but you must be present to win.
AGE DIVISIONS & AWARDS
Awards will be given to the first, second and third place male and female winners in each age division: 9 & under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 and 80+. Special awards will be given for the male & female overall, master, grandmaster and senior grandmaster winners.

Unregistered runners, unauthorized vehicles, bicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, rollerblades, scooters, baby joggers/strollers and dogs are strictly prohibited. Runners are prohibited from carrying objects with them while they run to prevent the possibility of injury to themselves or others. We discourage the use of radio/recorder headphones.
