Inaugural Ron Jon Cocoa Beach Half Marathon
Start Date: 10-25-2015
1500 N Atlantic Ave, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931
VIRTUAL REGISTRATION CLOSES SEPTEMBER 1.
Registered runners may change over to virtual run until September 1 – NO EXCEPTIONS.
THE RACE ENTRY FIELD IS FULL & REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
Run by the sea and through the most storied beach history on the Space Coast as you head up coastal A1A from Patrick Air Force Base (site of a mock wedding between Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden!) and into Cocoa Beach. From there, you will continue up A1A passing by our title sponsor’s World Famous Ron Jon Surf Shop and looping through a tree-lined neighborhood before entering an access to the flat and hard-packed sands of Cocoa Beach.
Off the coast you are very likely to see fishing boats, giant cruise ships, porpoises and diving birds. Once off the beach, you will head back onto A1A and a fabulous finish on I Dream of Jeannie Lane!
The race features the individual 13.1 miles marathon distance, a 1/2 marathon relay whereby two member teams run 6.55 miles each to share the glory and a Genie costume division specifically for those who run in their favorite Genie apparel! There is a HARD 4 hour time limit for all entrants.
Amenities will include a few musical acts along the course, tech shirts to all pre-registered runners and a one-of-a-kind custom made and hand-painted Genie Bottle medal for all individual and relay member finishers!!
The after party and awards ceremony will be on “I Dream of Jeannie Lane” at Lori Wilson Park and feature more live music, draft beer, lots of food and an “I Dream of Jeannie” Genie costume and look alike contest!
Check out our Genie Bottle medal to the left! It is 4″ tall and shaped like a genie bottle. Hand painted and one of the heaviest and certainly most unique finisher medals ever!
