The Inaugural Myakka River Half Marathon / 5K, was run in the beautiful Myakka River State Park in Sarasota, Florida on November 21, 2015. It was a tremendous success. The 2nd annual “Run for the Memories” will be even more amazing.

It will be run on Saturday November 12, 2016.   The race is being hosted by the Florida Compassion Foundation. The FCF helps the families of alzheimer’s patients with expenses not covered by insurance and helps with funding to find a cure. Working closely with the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, they team up to show compassion when it seems there is no hope. Your entry or donation to this race will really make a difference for a family in need.

This beautiful course runs through the park all on paved roads under tree canopies, along the shores of Myakka Lake. This is Real Florida. This course will be USATF Certified. There will be a great after party and lots of perks!
