UPDATE: September 29, 2021

The course map will be emailed to all participants. A strava version of the half marathon will also be emailed to all participants early next week.  We do not use google maps for marking out our courses, as Babcock Ranch is still in the early stages of development, and some of the newer roads/trails have not yet been included in google or apple maps.

This race is to benefit Babcock Neighborhood School.

Did anybody say FREE beer? One of our GOLD sponsors - Riverside Family Eye Care of Fort Myers will be giving all finishers a FREE beer.
