Daytona Beach Half Marathon

It’s back! The Daytona Beach Half Marathon is back in 2016, after taking off last year due to construction and changes happening over at the Speedway. I was able to run the 2014 race and really enjoyed it. So, I’m excited to go back next month to run it again!

Daytona Beach Half Marathon takes you on a 13.1 journey from the Daytona Speedway, to the infamous Daytona Beach and back again to the Speedway. It’s a unique race that has a route like no other. If you’ve ever wanted to run where the big Daytona 500 takes place every year (along with many other car races), THIS is the race for you.

Daytona International Speedway partnered up again with Volusia County Government to bring back the iconic race back into the community. The race was named one of the seven scenic half marathons in America by Runners will be among the first to see the newly renovated Daytona International Speedway. The route begins at the World Center of Racing, taking runners from the historic flat asphalt surface of the Speedway, then onto the main thoroughfare, to an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean from the International Speedway Boulevard bridge. The course then continues east to the beautiful, hard-packed sands of Daytona Beach, then back to the finish at the Speedway.

If you are anxious to run this great race, you’re in luck! The race has given me a race entry into the half marathon on February 7th for one lucky reader of this blog.

Daytona Beach Half Marathon Giveaway! — 7 Comments

  1. I would love to run this race and experience something fun like this. I used to be a college athlete (graduated in 2003), but life happens. I am overweight and working on it. In 2012 I had foot surgery (Plantar). In 2013 I had my amazing little boy. Because of the success of the surgery and the birth of my little man I set out to make a life change and find love of sport again. I did! I discovered running again (I used to be a great cross country runner long ago). I use the Galloway Method and it keeps me loving this sport. I’m nowhere near where I was years ago, but I’m okay with that. I’m setting a great example for my son and my students (I’m a 4th grade teacher) and that is a good start. This race would be my 8th Half Marathon. I have set a goal of completing a full marathon next January. This race would continue me down that path. The uniqueness of this race would be special as my husband used to travel to Daytona each year from NJ to compete in car audio competitions on the national level. It would be cool to run in a place that was so important to him.

  2. I ran this awesome race in 2014. Loved running on the race track and down to the ocean. Saw Jimmie Johnson! Lots of food at the finish.

  3. This is the big race that I missed in 2013 about 5 weeks after I broke my foot. It would have been my second half, but I was still in the boot when race day rolled around. I’ve never had the chance to make it back to Daytona to run this race, so getting that opportunity would be really awesome!

  4. Running the Daytona 5k and I’m hoping to do my first half this year. This would be perfect!

  5. I just love to run!! It would be even better if I could run it with one of my BRFs Carlie ??

  6. If I was in Florida during that time, it’s definitely a race I’d be interested in, but alas I’m stuck with my cold, snowy winter! I hope you have a great race!
