Description

Join us November 21st for a Thanksgiving Holiday Half Marathon / 5K within the beautiful Nocatee community. Start and finish will take place in the field next to the Nocatee Splash Water Park.  The course will include the scenic Nocatee Greenway Trails, and will circle through several of the local developments within Nocatee.

To allow for social distancing at the start we will be scoring over all winners based on 'gun time' and age group winners based off 'chip time'.  We ask for elite runners going for the win to toe off first at the start line.  There is no need to stand crowded together at the start line.  All runners will receive an official 'chip time' based off the time they individually cross the start line to their finish.  The 'chip time' is used for all age group ranking.

We ask that all runners wear a face mask during packet pickup / checkin, and that you practice social distancing during the event.  Runners do not need to wear masks while racing.
