Runners, walkers and paddleboard enthusiasts can test their skills and celebrate Ernest Hemingway’s sporting lifestyle Saturday, July 24th, 2021 during the Hemingway 5k Sunset Run/Walk and Paddleboard Race. The athletic challenges are part of Hemingway Days, a six-day commemoration of the life and work of the author who lived and wrote in Key West for most of the 1930s.

The Paddleboard Race is to kick off at 5:30 p.m. at the island city’s Southernmost Beach, 1405 Duval St. on the Atlantic Ocean. Competitors are tasked with paddling a 3-mile ocean course before finishing back at the beach.

The 5K run/walk begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Southernmost Point in the continental United States, oceanfront at Whitehead and South streets. Participants race through picturesque Old Town Key West, past landmarks including the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum.

Afterwards, a post-race awards party is scheduled at the Southernmost Beach Café with food, libations and raffles.

Paddleboard awards are to be presented to the first- through 10th-place male and female finishers. In the 5K, awards await the top three male and female overall finishers, top three male and female masters, and top three male and female finishers in age categories ranging from 9 and under to 75 and over. In addition, special medals will be awarded to those competing in both challenges.
