    What a small, fun race in mid January. While standing at the Finish Line, I was amazed at the hometowns being announced as runners finished. I believe I heard all 50 states and many foreign countries. It really is a destination race, especially for those tired of the cold! Not a lot of fan support out on the out n back along the shore of the Atlantic, but the scenery makes up for it.

    I am starting to really like this race. My third time running and gets better every year. Nice warm weather spot for very scenic half. I use race to start my spring marathon training.
    Well organized-slight weather delay did even cause glitch in the execution of the race.!
    Highly recommend the race, Key West great spot and mostly you will have blast at the race and in Key West

    The half marathon was so much fun! It was sort of a windy, chilly day when we ran, but that didn’t take away the enjoyment. The course starts off running down Duval street then takes a detour past the southernmost point (where all the tourists are!) and then runs along the ocean for the majority of time. It’s an out and back course, so you run the same portion of the course again, but it’s very scenic and very flat. Key West as a destination is a challenge to get to, but well worth the effort. The swag is fantastic! A long sleeve, technical shirt with Key West-inspired design, and the medal had the lighthouse on it which actually blinked. Would highly recommend this race as a destination race!

    I thought the course was nice and flat very scenic going out for the first 2-3 miles and coming in the last 2-3 miles everything I between is sidewalk along the ocean. Volunteers where very sweet aid stations where plentiful, i felt like bathrooms lacked a little and had to stop to find a public restroom. Overall a good race . My only complaint is that after the 3:30 mark a lot of volunteers started walking off the course and as I sat and watched the BOP come in they didn’t have any direction on where to go and no course markings . I was giving directions to the finish line!! That’s not cool and I would have felt defeated if it was me.

    This race is terrific! The weather was a bit windy this year, but you take what you can get in January. The course is lovely, lots of beach and water views. A four hour time limit allows to tons of photo ops and fun along they way. Many water stops and volunteers. It was really a good time, super flat, gorgeous medal & awesome long-sleeved tech shirt. It’s a fun race and I loved it! We walked nearly the entire thing, so my time is on the slow side, but it was worth it!

    Can go wrong with a trip to Key West Florida to run a race. January was the perfect time to get outta the cold and enjoy the sun in Key west. Course is flat and scenic. I have no complaints about this race, everything was well organized. Swag = drawstring bag, unique race shirt ( I really liked it) wine topper medal.

    If you are looking for a fantastic, relaxing, beautiful getaway, then go to Key West, Florida in January and do this race. You don’t need to take a long vacation either; 4 days is enough time to see the whole island and enjoy everything. Rent a scooter to get around. Rent a Jeep and spend a day driving Highway 1.

    I ran this race in 2012.

    The race begins at 7am. The race was pretty flat throughout. The course takes you through various city streets. Most of the course is run along the water which is beautiful. At one point of the race you run near the southern most point of the island (90 miles from Cuba).

    The temperature was hotter than expected. I think it hit in the 80s during the race and it was humid.

    The worse part about this race was that my chip didn’t work. Essentially, I made up my finish time.

    Despite the heat, it was a beautiful, flat and fast course
