Covid-19 & Event Management

Our race management team is closely following the Covid-19 situation and in regular contact with local health officials.
Our races and overall events will follow the recommended guidelines of the State of Florida and also of USA Triathlon and USA Track & Field.
Typical race amenities such as aid and water stations and portalets will remain, with an increased emphasis on sanitization.
We at Smooth Running will continue to strive for a premium event experience for all our athletes, with hygiene and safety being paramount.

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 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 where you will begin your low-tide, 2.9 mile run on 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 and a 1/2 marathon relay whereby two member teams run 6.55 miles each to share the glory. There is also a Genie costume division specifically for those who run in their favorite Genie apparel and a Major Anthony Nelson division for those running in military uniform! There is a HARD 3.5 hour time limit for all entrants.

Amenities will include a few musical acts along the course, tech shirts to all pre-registered runners, custom Genie Bottle embroidered running caps 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! Race Day – Sunday, October 20, 2019
