KEY WEST, Florida Keys Runners and paddleboard enthusiasts can test their skills and celebrate Ernest Hemingways sporting lifestyle during the Hemingway 5k Sunset Run and Paddleboard Race set for Saturday, July 19.

The challenges are part of the annual Hemingway Days festival that commemorates the life and work of the author who lived in Key West throughout the 1930s.

The Lazy Dog Paddleboard Race is to kick off at 6 p.m. at the island citys Southernmost Beach, 1405 Duval St. on the Atlantic Ocean. Competitors are tasked with paddling a 3-mile ocean course before finishing back at the beach.

The 5k run is to begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Southernmost Point in the continental United States, located overlooking the ocean at Whitehead and South streets. The fast, flat 3.1-mile course takes runners through picturesque Old Town Key West past landmarks including the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum. There is a walking division as well.

Afterwards, a post-race awards party is scheduled at the Southernmost Hotel, 1319 Duval St.

Paddleboard awards are to be presented to the first- through tenth-place male and female finishers. In the 5k, awards await the top three male and female overall finishers, top three male and female masters and top three male and female finishers in age categories ranging from 9 and under to 75 and over.

A registration booth is to be open 3-7 p.m. race day at the Southernmost Hotel. Race packets can be picked up there.

Interested participants can register online at www.active.com. Registration forms can be downloaded from www.keywestspecialevents.com or picked up at local hotels and fitness centers.

The registration fee is $40 per adult for either race ($45 on race day), and $25 per entrant under age 15. A finisher Medal will be given all to participants in the 5K and Paddle Board Race. Price Includes Fully sublimated Race shirts, beer, food, raffles and more!
