Sea Turtle half-marathon and Sweetheart 5K Feb. 15

Posted

LA Fleet Club has announced the 19th Annual Sweetheart SK and 1-mile Fun Run at The Hangout. The race will kick off Saturday, Feb. 15, at 7:30 a.m. with the Sea Turtle half-marathon, a beautiful destination run and a fast and flat course.

This event draws athletes, runners and families from across the Southeast because of the unmatched scenery of the course, adjacent to the white sandy beaches and turquoise Gulf waters.

The 1-mile Fun Run will start at 8:30 a.m. and the Sweetheart SK will follow at 9 a.m. One of the many reasons families love this iconic race is because the children can participate in the fun run while parents compete in the half-marathon, and all 3 races finish at approximately the same time.

Immediately following the race, a post-race after-party in The Hangout courtyard with live music, craft beer, and games for the children like giant Jenga, foosball and ping pong, foam parties and more.

Participants receive one box lunch provided by The Hangout, and the award ceremony will take place in front of the main stage. The race coordinators will announce the winners for each category and age group.

Nonprofit support every year with 100 percent of the race proceeds support charitable causes such as Camp Rap-A-Hope, Mary's Shelter Gulf Coast, Share the Beach, Gulf Coast Arts Alliance, Alabama Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and Miracle League of Coastal Alabama.
