Unfortunately the Conquistador Half and 5K has been cancelled. Sorry for the inconvenience. Refunds will be issued in due time. 

August 22, 2018

Regrettably due to a number of contributing factors, it is with sincere sadness that I announce the cancellation of the 2018 Hernando De Soto ½ Marathon and 5K scheduled to be ran on December 15, 2018 in Manatee County.

Today is a hard day and I am truly sad for all the runners who have trained hard for this event, our committee members who have dedicated numerous hours and community who looked forward to this race. A number of situations have occurred which left us no alternative but to cancel this event. This is not a decision that was made lightly and I know that many of our current entrants will be upset with this decision, however, at this point, it would be irresponsible to continue with this event, this year.
Refunds to all racers who had not cancelled or had outstanding balances will be completed within 30-business days.

Please see our website at for further information on upcoming events.

Thank you,
