34TH HEMINGWAY 5K SUNSET RUN & PADDLEBOARD RACE IS SATURDAY, JULY 22, 2023 IN KEY WEST WITH NEW LOCATION FOR PADDLEBOARD RACE
Key West, FL – The 34th Anniversary Hemingway 5K Sunset Run and Paddleboard Race presented by Papa’s Pilar Rum, named one of the best 5Ks to run this summer by Runner’s World, returns Saturday, July 22, 2023.
The event takes place in the heart of tropical Key West, a worldwide travel destination with spectacular waterfront views and historic downtown charm, and at the same time the island celebrates legendary author Ernest Hemingway with an annual festival.
The only change this year is the location of the paddleboard race, which will take place Saturday at Higgs Beach, 1000 Atlantic Blvd. and start at 5:30 p.m., followed by the 5K walk/run which starts at 7:30 p.m.
As always, the 5K walk/run will take place at the Southernmost Point, 1400 Whitehead St.
This short and sweet race offers a special twist in the 5K world, Runner’s World said: “Gorgeous Key West lets entrants enjoy both the sea and the shore as they can sign up for either race, or both if they're adventurous.”
The Hemingway 5K Sunset Run also includes the Key West Beach N’ Beer Mile, the Key West Papa’s Pilar Rum Stroll, an awards ceremony and beachside after party. Visit our website for details. Race results will be posted on www.keywesthalfmarathon.com and Facebook.
