Survival Beach Obstacle Race
The racers in the Survival Beach Obstacle Race use a lot more than their feet to get to the finish line. When the marker sounds at 8 a.m., runners take off from the starting line at Ft. Myers Beach and hoof it through Bowdith Point Park and nearly a dozen course obstacles along the way. The race is held as part of Ft. Myers Beach Marathon Event Weekend, and all racers receive entry to the accompanying beer fest with tunes spun by a DJ.
Sunshine State Races
On January 4, 2014, runners along the water on North and South Flagler Drives will most likely be part of Sunshine State Races. The scenic route hosts a timed 5K race and a more challenging half marathon. Winners from each age division win awards—such as gift certificates and tickets to local events—and, at the end of the race, all participants receive a high-five from their running sneakers.
