Note: I was given a free race entry to the 2016 Daytona Beach Half Marathon in exchange for blogging about the race. All opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.
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 Active.com. 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.
