About The Medal Madness Mardi Gras 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon at North Collier

The Medal Madness Mardi Gras 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon at North Collier in Naples, Florida is sure to be a great race. On 18 February 2023 runners will have the chance to experience some of the best scenery that Naples has to offer while running through beautiful parks and along scenic waterfronts.

The course for this half marathon is quite flat and fast, with only a few slight inclines throughout. It starts off at North Collier Regional Park where it takes you on an out-and-back route past mangrove forests and wildlife preserves before heading back towards the park again. Along the way you’ll get stunning views of sunsets over Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve as well as glimpses of downtown Naples from afar. The final stretch winds around Vanderbilt Beach before ending back in North Collier Regional Park for the finish line celebration!

Weather wise, late February can be quite mild for Florida but expect some humid conditions too so make sure you stay hydrated! The crowds are usually made up of locals who come out to support their fellow runners so it’s always a very friendly atmosphere during races like this one.

One special thing about this half marathon is that participants receive unique medals with each distance completed – a 5K medal, 10k medal and then finally a half marathon medal if they complete all three distances (so no need to worry about signing up separately). Plus there’s plenty of refreshments available after the race including beer which makes it even more fun!

In conclusion, if you’re looking for an enjoyable run with spectacular views then look no further than the Medal Madness Mardi Gras 5K/10K/Half Marathon at North Collier in Naples on 18 February 2023 – this event promises not only amazing scenery but also unique rewards too!
