About The Sarasota West Coast Half Marathon

The Sarasota West Coast Half Marathon is an exciting event held in sunny Sarasota, Florida on December 18th, 2022. With its flat and fast course, this race promises a great experience for all levels of runners.

The route is primarily along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico with stunning views that will keep your motivation high throughout the race. It begins at Ken Thompson Park near Lido Beach and takes you north along South Lido Beach towards downtown Sarasota before heading back to finish at Mote Marine Laboratory on City Island. Along the way you’ll pass by some incredible natural scenery including lush mangrove forests and breathtaking sunsets over the water.

The typical weather in December tends to be mild with temperatures ranging from around 50 degrees Fahrenheit at sunrise up to 70-75 degrees during midday – perfect for running! The crowds are usually lively and supportive; a mix of locals as well as visitors who come to cheer you on through each mile marker.

One unique feature about this half marathon is that it includes an underwater portion, where participants run across sandbars through ankle deep waters off Longboat Key! This adds an element of fun to your journey while also providing amazing sights like fish jumping out of water or even dolphins passing by if you’re lucky enough!

Overall, if you’re looking for a challenging yet rewarding race experience then look no further than the Sarasota West Coast Half Marathon – it’s sure to provide beautiful views and unforgettable memories!
