Upcoming Race: Mount Dora Half Marathon | BibRavePro

Looking for a half marathon to finish out 2018 with? Why not join me at the Mount Dora Half Marathon here in sunny Florida. It's been an up-and-down year - without a lot of running - so I'm happy to be pushing towards something and getting back at it. Perhaps you can join me for some winter running.

Mount Dora Half Marathon & 5K

My favorite distance to run is a half marathon. It's a challenge for me but also one I know I can push through on my bad days. That's why I'm excited to jump back in with a local race, the Mount Dora Half Marathon. You can join me December 15th and 16th, 2018 at Elizabeth Evans Park in Mount Dora, Florida located northwest of Orlando. There are two races for your running pleasure a 5K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even run them both!

I haven't run the race before, but I'm excited for the course from reading what they have to say about it.
For the last 6 years 2000+ runners have fill the streets of the historic town of Mount Dora. This small town of 13,000 is filled with tree lined vistas of waterfront neighborhoods and lake-hugging roadways. Catch the rising sun through the gracefully swaying Spanish moss and watch the breeze dapple the lake’s surface with flashes of sunlight. The gentle rolling hills give this course a uniqueness of its own. 
The reviews on BibRave also look great - checking BibRave is a must for new races for me. It's described as "gorgeous and challenging" and as a "small race [with a] big heart". Pam, who has run it every year since it started, describes it as one of her favorite races.

Join Me

Are you sold on joining me on race day? Being from the northeast - even though I'm a Floridian now - I'm so looking forward to running in Florida December weather. So come on out and join me!
