Welcome to the main event

Our 2020 course will feature a Start & Finish line near the beach, on Las Olas & A1A, at the Las Olas Oceanside Park, 3000 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316.  The course will feature 2 loops out and back on A1A.  While not ideal, due to constraints of city services, volunteers, and staff, the 2-loop course will ease the logistics of the event.  The Start & Finish will be on the south end of the park on the Access Road.   The Relay Exchange will take place on A1A towards the middle of the park.
