Be prepared

The after party will offer something for everyone and you may see something you'd like to bring home from one of our vendors! You may want to bring some cash or a card with you in the event there is something you'd wish to purchase. We will have some added adult beverages, a florida fishing apparel company and massage therapists on site. 

Every runner 21+ will receive two drinks tickets with registration. This is in addition to multiple beer stops along the course which are limited by law to 8oz. Full size beers of several varieties and hand crafted mojitos of different flavors can be redeemed with these tickets. Additional beverages can be purchased with cash- $3 for beer and $6 for mojitos. 

We are out there to raise money and awareness for Meals on Wheels of Manatee, Inc! We will have a table set up where you can donate canned goods before the start of the race. Anything you can bring will be greatly appreciated!
