Paradise...fun in the sun, toes in the sand, with a drink in my hand. That's exactly what I thought of when I first read the location for this race was Key West. Then combine that with my love for running, races, and bling...it's a win win! This is one race that I didn't even hesitate on.
"No hills, just chills" is the motto of this race! Only in Key West, right? To me, the course seems to be what I call "flat and fast." If you're looking for a PR then @somomarathon (or half marathon) is your race. The course will take you around the island, from the Atlantic to the Gulf, and back. Along the route you'll have historic landmarks and amazing scenery to take in during each mile. Take a look at the courses!

And then there is the finish line. You'll cross the finish line at The Rum Barrel, where a fabulous celebration party will be in full swing. There will be live music and snacks/drinks for runners. There's also lots of great events going on during the weekend to kick off and celebrate the race.
