This running season, challenge yourself and register for all four half marathons. Measure your progress from October through March, set some PRs, and take home a well-deserved Challenge medal (in addition to your finisher's medals).

With both our first and last race at Ft. De Soto Park, you'll likely see how your running has improved by the end of the season. Our races are staged 6-8 weeks apart, giving you plenty of recovery and training time between each race.

We track each athlete's best three (out of four*) finishing times and add them together to determine the Florida Halfathon Series Champion for overall and age group. You may be rewarded with a trophy at the closing ceremony!

You'll save money, too! By signing up for all 4 halfathons at once, you'll save some bucks!

Make this your most memorable running season yet and sign up for the Florida Halfathon Challenge today! To register, click here.

* The Clearwater Marathon can count for 1 or 2 half-marathons. Runners must run at the Florida Beach Halfathon to be eligible for the championship.
