Extremely well-produced race, from the initial lottery and sign-up process to the race itself through the gorgeous cherry blossom trees. A couple glitches with the new bag check system (nine lines is too few for this size race) and medals (unexpected number of runners who switched from 10 to 5k resulted in a shortage of 5k medals) I’m sure will be fixed next year. I signed up for this race after seeing it in one of those must-do races articles, and I’m very glad I did.

Florida is flat and this race is no exception, but Florida’s weather is predicatbly unpredicable. Although the day was sunny, there also were 3-4 foot swells in the ocean and a strong wind out of the south, which greatly affected the last segment of the bike. It was due to this unpredictable weather that I chose to sign up for the duathlon. (The race also included an aquabike and sprint and olympic tris.) Much of the bike ride is very scenic–either along beaches of Fort Lauderdale or in Hugh Birch State Park. The run portion of the races is all along the coast as well. The medal was up to multirace’s usual high standards, and the event was very well managed.

Starting weather looked like it would be a lot worse than it was; rain stopped at the start and temps for the half at least were manageable, tho the Miami humidity was high as usual. The medal was beautiful as usual and the expo was world class.

I was scheduled to do this race last year, but had to defer due to injury. (Very easy to defer.) This year we were threatened by a storm front blowing through but it cleared just before the start. Luckily most of the parking was in covered garages very near the start line. The race organizers gave us good advance notice of the possibility of a delay due to lightning but none materialized.
The race course is entirely residential through some posh Naples neighborhoods. Hydration stations (Gatorade and water) and portapotties were plentiful. Several out and back cul-de-sacs allowed you to repeatedly see friends both ahead of and behind you. Photos excellent although not free 🙁
Finish line, medal, and post race great with free beer!
