The 2017 Daytona Beach Half Marathon will be held two weeks prior to the 59th annual DAYTONA 500, NASCAR’s biggest, richest and most prestigious race.
The 2016 Daytona Beach Half Marathon attracted 2,748 runners, more than double the number of runners in 2014. It features a breathtaking course that takes runners from the historic asphalt (flat surface) of Daytona International Speedway to International Speedway Boulevard leading to a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean atop the International Speedway Boulevard highrise bridge to the sparkling, white, hard-packed sands of Daytona Beach and then back to the start/finish line inside the iconic motorsports facility.
The 2017 event includes a half marathon, a two-person half marathon relay, a 3.1-mile lap the track, and a new Speedway Challenge which allows runners to complete both the half marathon or relay and the 3.1-mile lap the track. The Speedway Challenge is limited to the first 1,000 runners who register and finishers will receive a prestigious third medal.
Early bird registration from July 1 - October 31 is $80 for the Daytona Beach Half Marathon, $70 for the half marathon relay and $30 for the 3.1-mile Lap the Track.
