Volusia County Government and Daytona International Speedway have announced the 2017 Daytona Beach Half Marathon will be held at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, two weeks prior to the 59th annual DAYTONA 500, NASCAR’s biggest, richest and most prestigious race. Registration will open July 1.
The 2016 Daytona Beach Half Marathon attracted 2,748 runners, more than double the number of runners in 2014. “We were very pleased with the turnout,” said Jim Dinneen, Volusia County Manager. “The feedback was excellent. I am confident we’ll see an increase in registrations for next year’s event. We continue to make adjustments based on runner comments. I think moving the start time to 7:30 is a big change that will be well received.”
The Daytona Beach Half Marathon features a breathtaking course that takes runners from the historic asphalt (flat surface) of Daytona International Speedway to International Speedway Boulevard leading to a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean atop the International Speedway Boulevard highrise bridge to the sparkling, white, hard-packed sands of Daytona Beach and then back to the start/finish line inside the iconic motorsports facility.
Early bird registration from July 1 - October 31 is $80 for the Daytona Beach Half Marathon, $70 for the half marathon relay and $30 for the 3.1-mile Lap the Track.
