Run for the Redfish

Take your mark… GO! Get ready for Run for the Redfish!

The flat, sandy beaches of our beautiful coast will be the setting for the third annual Run For The Redfish Half Marathon, 5K & Kids’ One-Mile Fun Run, which will take runners entirely along the highway that runs right next to the waves crashing into the shore along Panama City Beach!

The race also will double as a fundraiser for the Coastal Conservation Association, a non-profit organization with chapters in 17 states that seeks to preserve coastal fisheries and promote awareness about conserving marine environments.

From the starting line near Panama City’s Pier Park, which lies at the intersection of Front Beach Road and Pier Park Drive, the race takes runners on an out-and-back route that unfolds entirely along Front Beach Road, all the way northwest to where the road meets Carillion Beach. Once runners hit the turnaround point, they begin running back to Pier Park, where the finish line festivities will take place at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant!
