SEA TURTLE HALF MARATHON & SWEETHEART 5K. FAST & FLAT COURSE – DESTINATION RUN
February 15, 2020 – 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM
LA Fleet Club has announced the 19th Annual Sweetheart 5K and 1-mile Fun Run at The Hangout. The race will kick off on Saturday, February 15th at 7:30 AM with the Sea Turtle Half Marathon, a beautiful destination run and a fast and flat course. This event draws athletes, runners and families from all across the Southeast because of the unmatched scenery of the course, adjacent to the white sandy beaches and turquoise Gulf waters. The 1-mile Fun Run will start at 8:30 AM and the Sweetheart 5K will follow at 9:00 AM. One of the many reasons families love this iconic race is because the kids can participate in the fun run while parents compete in the half marathon, and all 3 races finish at approximately the same time.
Post Race After-Party at The Hangout
Come for the race, stay for the party! Immediately following the race is a post race after-party in The Hangout courtyard with live music, craft beer, and games for the kids like giant jenga, foosball and ping pong, foam parties and more. Participants receive one box lunch provided by The Hangout, and the award ceremony will take place in front of the main stage. The race coordinators will announce the winners for each category and age group.
Every year, 100% of the race proceeds support charitable causes such as Camp Rap-A-Hope, Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast, Share the Beach, Gulf Coast Arts Alliance, Alabama Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and Miracle League of Coastal Alabama.
