Sarasota Music Half Marathon-10

On Course Party

The race is one big party from start to finish. Grill on your lawn. Invite friends for beer. Pull up a pool chair. Make cheer signs with your kids. Ring a cowbell. Dance to the music. You can have a party just about any place along the course. Sweet home, Alabama.


Girl Scout Cookie Stop

Don’t miss the Daisy Girl Scout Cookie Pit Stop in Cherokee Park, mile 8.5. Who doesn’t like a Girl Scout cookie? Love those Samoas or are you a fan of Thin Mints? The cute little Daisies, Brownies and Girl Scouts will have them all. A donation will be made to the local troop for every cookie you eat…so chomp away!


The Beer Mile

We definitely bring you home in style for the 13th mile. You must have a special race wristband and bib indicating you’re over 21. No bib, no beer, no fun. But lots of water and sports drink!


Post Race Beer Garden

Open to all runners 21 and over. You must have our special wristband that you received at packet pick-up on your wrist or your photo id. Who runs with id?
