Combine Veteran’s Day weekend, historic Pensacola, sugar white sandy beaches, add a route atop the bluffs overlooking Escambia Bay where runners greet the sunrise and you have the perfect recipe for the 11th Annual Pensacola Marathon.
The race begins and ends at Veteran’s Memorial Park on the bayfront then winds its way along a 13.1 mile circuit of the city for the half marathoners and a full 26.2 loop for the full marathon. The course features running through historic neighborhoods, the downtown district, bands, and cheering Pensacolians. The finish line is next to the only replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The Pensacola Marathon is also a Boston Qualifier for you still needing to qualify.
November in Pensacola provides great weather for a race where temperatures average 60 degrees.
