About the event...
Elite Events presents the Florida West Coast Half Marathon and 5k at Nathan Benderson Park.
The scenic course takes runners through and around the University Town Center area with nearly constant water views.
Then it's on to the most unique finish in running, the "Floating Final Mile" as runners literally run across the lake for over a mile until finishing in front of the large grandstand inside the park. Don't miss this unique event and its sparkling finisher's medal for BOTH the half marathon and 5k!
"Situated just west of Interstate 75 in tropically beautiful Sarasota, Florida, Nathan Benderson Park is a unique 600-acre community park providing the public access to a picturesque 400-acre lake and an exciting world of recreational pursuits."
