17th Annual Key West Half Marathon & 5K

JANUARY 18, 2015





The 16th Annual Key West Half Marathon & 5K Run held January 19, 2014 with Picture perfect weather, signaling the most successful season on record. The Key West Half Marathon was drawn to a finish on Sunday, with a record-breaking number of participants. The race over doubled in size, as the streets and alleyways of Key West hosted the largest quantity of runners in history. Proving to be one of the highest caliber destination races, we had representation from all 50 states, and 11 nations. At the finish line there was plenty to celebrate from PR’s, birthdays, first time finishers, cancer survivors, and the perseverance that each person exhibited to be there and make the race happen. This year’s event benefited the Key West Sunrise Rotary Scholarship Fund, Florida Keys Community College Youth Swim program, A Positive Step for Kids and VFC 111 MWR. Thank you to all of the volunteers who took time out of their schedules to help out, and congratulations to all of this year’s participants!
