About The Pensacola Half Marathon

The Pensacola Half Marathon is an annual event held in the beautiful city of Pensacola, Florida. On October 8th, 2023 runners will be able to take part in this exciting race while enjoying views of the Emerald Coast along the way. Running through historic downtown and scenic waterfront areas, participants will have a chance to experience all that Pensacola has to offer.

The route for the race takes runners along a 13-mile course starting at Bayfront Park and heading west towards Gulf Breeze before looping back around and finishing on Palafox Street in downtown Pensacola. Along the way there are plenty of sights to see including beautiful beaches, lagoons with alligators sunning themselves, stately homes, old churches and more. The scenery throughout is breathtaking as you take in natural beauty while still getting your exercise!

Weather during this time of year tends to be quite mild with highs ranging from 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-27 Celsius) making it perfect running weather if you don’t mind a bit of humidity. Because it’s October crowds tend not to be too large so participants can focus on their own performance without worrying about feeling crowded or rushed by other competitors or spectators.

What makes this half marathon truly special is its unique location; situated near both Florida’s panhandle coast but also close enough for visitors from Alabama or Mississippi who might want to come join in as well! Additionally many locals attend each year creating an incredibly welcoming atmosphere that adds even more enjoyment than usual for such events – it really feels like one big party!

In conclusion I would highly recommend signing up for the 2023 edition of the Pensacola Half Marathon – whether you’re looking for some stunning scenery or just trying out running races this one offers something special every step of its 13 mile course!
