This beautiful course runs through the park all on paved roads under tree canopies, along the shores of Myakka Lake. This is Real Florida. This course will be USATF Certified. There will be a great after party and lots of perks! This race will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association – Florida Gulf Coast.
At BlingRunners we are very passionate about helping to find a cure for this atrocious disease. On April 1, 2015 Kimberly Hussey, co-owner of BlingRunners LLC, lost her mother to Alzheimer’s. She was only 68 years old.
With your entry fee or donation you will be helping fund the research to find a cure. The Alzheimer’s Association truly feels that they are within 10 years of finding a cure. Run this race in memory of someone you love that is fighting this disease now or a loved one who lost their battle to this disease. We are hosting the event in loving memory of Kim’s mom, Charlene Corniel.
