Hemingway Days 5K run & 3 mile Paddle Board race

July TBA, 2019 Paddle Race starts at 6pm, 5K starts at 7:30pm

Race in the Run or the Paddle…. or Race both!  Register here.

The popular 5K Run (and Walk) is the oldest ongoing race in Key West, and for the fourth year also combines a Paddleboard Race, which has grown tremendously. Entrants are encouraged to sign up early and can reserve paddle boards with Lazy Dog Outfitters. At 6 p.m., the Stand-Up Paddle Board Race starts at the island’s Southernmost Beach, 1405 Duval St. The course is three miles on the Atlantic Ocean then finishes back at the beach.

Then the 5K Run will begin at 7:30 at the Southernmost Point in the continental United States, which overlooks the ocean at Whitehead and South streets. The fast, flat 3.1-mile course takes runners through picturesque Old Town Key West past landmarks including the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum.

In true Key West style, there’s an after-party back at the beach by the Southernmost Beach Cafe., with awards, food, libations, raffles, and a silent auction.

On race day, the registration booth will be open from 3-7 p.m. at the Southernmost Hotel. Race packets can be picked up there. The race will be chip timed.

Learn from our WPA certified instructors. We are delighted to share our knowledge with you to help you have a safe and successful race experience. Whether you are a first time paddler or a paddler looking to brush up on your paddle stroke technique and gain some pointers before race day, this class is for you!
