Description

Bradenton Area Conquistador Half Marathon / 5K / 1 Mile FUNRUN

Register now to secure your space in Manatee County's one & only 13-miler in gorgeous Manatee County. A Hernando DeSoto Historical Society Signature Event. The fun kicks off at 6:30am in downtown Bradenton. As the course proceeds to Manatee Avenue, the Green Bridge challenge begins. Run over the mile-wide Manatee River, through historic Palmetto then back over the bridge. Continue along Bradenton's main thoroughfare before turning onto Riverview Boulevard to gape at the stately waterfront homes. A couple more turns until you finish in downtown Bradenton, just before the start of the Farmer’s Market! Post-race hospitality will be top notch, complete with beer/champagne/bloody Mary tent and recovery fuel (i.e. tasty food).

Or if 13.1 miles is not your style, try the challenging 5K bridge run!!!

This year we have added a BRAND NEW 5K race. One of the most challenging 5K’s on the Florida Gulf Coast. The race will start in scenic downtown Bradenton where you will immediately face the first of two bridge challenges, over the Green Bridge into Beautiful Palmetto, run along the Riverside to return for the 2nd bridge challenge as you head to the finish line. ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE??! Be part of the 1st Conquistador 5K! 

All Finishers will receive a Long Sleeve Tech Shirt, Finisher's Medal and entrance into the Post-Race Beer Garden where you will be able to try a custom-brewed craft beer from local favorite, Darwin Brewing Company.  In addition to Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and Budweiser sponsored by our very own Desoto GOATS!!

P.S. Don't forget the 1 mile FUN RUN. The 1 mile Fun Run will meander you along Bradenton's beautiful Riverwalk returning to the race expo area to pick up your finisher's medal.

Race starts promptly at 6:30am in DT Bradenton!  We believe in getting the dirty work out of the way early in the game which means the first mile will find you traveling over the Green Bridge into beautiful Palmetto, making a short run along the Riverside to return back over the bridge to head towards the scenic Riverview Blvd.  The race will finish in DT Bradenton where you will be treated to recovery food and Beer/Champagne/Bloody Mary Garden area.
