Quarter Marathon (6.55 Miles) USATF Certified Course # FL17059TY
5K USATF Certified Course # FL17058TY

The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.

Packet pick up and registration is available on Thursday, October 12, from 1 PM - 5 PM or on Friday, October 13, from 8 AM - 4 PM, at the Babe James Center, 201 N. Myrtle Ave., New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168. Packet pick up and registration is also available on race day, beginning at 6:30 AM, at the race site.

Runners will be awarded finisher's medals for both races. 

Only preregistered runners are guaranteed to receive an event shirt.

 Quarter Marathon and 5K runners may receive awards in the following categories: Overall, Masters, Grandmasters, and the top three finishers in 15 categories for Male and 15 categories for Female.

Please wear your bib number to the front, pinned at all four corners, visible, and unaltered. Results will be posted live online during the race at 

New Smyrna Beach is proud to be a charter member of the Daytona Running Series. Both races will count towards points in the Daytona Running Series.
