We regret to inform you that due to the significant impact of Hurricane Irma here in Islamorada, we must postpone the Islamorada Half Marathon, 10K & Beach N’ Beer Mile to February 3rd & 4th, 2018.
Following Hurricane Irma, we believed that the original dates of December 9th & 10th would still work for our event given the three month window of time for clean up efforts in the Keys. However, despite the immediate progress and resiliency from our residents and businesses, there is still much to do. Therefore, after recent evaluations with the local authorities we have come to the conclusion that a postponement is necessary.
Please know that the Village of Islamorada as well as the rest of the Florida Keys still very much looks forward to hosting our event and encourages all to attend our new dates. As tourism is the driving force behind the Keys economy, it is more important than ever to visit our beautiful paradise. We just ask for a little more time to clean up and get our businesses ready.
We ask that anyone who has made hotel reservations to call and make the necessary changes. Please note that some of the Islamorada hotels are currently closed and will remain closed until further notice. This includes our original hosting hotel, The Guy Harvey Islander Resort. For anyone who has reservations at these resorts, you should have been notified of a cancellation if they are to remain close through December. If Islamorada hotels are filled for the new dates, we encourage you to look into new accommodations in Key Largo. Most Key Largo hotels are open for business.
We are working hard to ensure that your race weekend is an unforgettable experience. Thank you everyone for your support and we look forward to seeing you on February 3rd & 4th.

Our events are located in one of the most sought after destinations in the U.S.A, the Florida Keys. Islamorada, known as the "Sportfishing Capital of the World" is located just 1.5 hours south of Miami (2 hours from Ft. Lauderdale) and 80 miles to Key West. Whether its diving, fishing, or drinks at sunset, Islamorada is a spot like no other. Fresh off the success from our second event in 2016, we hope you join us this year and treat yourself to a wonderful vacation.
