Our epic half marathon and 10K course are beautiful from the moment you start and begin to make your way over our scenic bridges with views of both the ocean and bay. The Beach N’ Beer Mile is becoming a favorite among locals and tourists who want to add a little fun in their run by drinking 4 beers in just one mile! We look forward to another awesome year and hope you come down and join us!
Florida Keys Fishing Fun Run Challenge
Registration Opens Monday, June 8th!
The Islamorada Running Company is proud to present the Florida Keys Virtual Fishing Run Challenge. As representatives of Islamorada and the Florida Keys, this means three things…...we RUN, we FISH and we have FUN. We’re here to bring you a virtual race that keeps your endorphins alive while supporting a great cause. Whether you are a seasoned marathoner or just looking for a nice walk in your neighborhood, we have a distance suitable for everyone. As with all of our events, you can expect to get some great swag.
As many of you are aware, Islamorada is known as the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World.” Fishing in Islamorada as well as the rest of the Florida Keys is Monroe County’s most important and loved industry. As you can imagine, the Covid-19 pandemic has deeply affected this industry. All fishing charters came to an abrupt halt as tourists were no longer allowed in the Keys during quarantine. This meant that all of our world-class fishing guides were immediately without work with no income coming in. In addition to everyday living expenses, these guides still need to cover the high overhead of being a fishing boat captain such as boat maintenance and marina costs. We knew that our virtual race needs to be a top tier event that is exciting for our runners as well as supporting a local beneficiary that is close to our heart. So it was an easy decision for us to pick the Florida Keys Fishing Guides Association Inc as the beneficiary to our virtual event. Please join us in running our race and helping a great cause!
