What to pack when heading to Pensacola FL for the Foo Foo Fest

11th Annual Pensacola Marathon

Date Posted: Jul 20, 2015

Combine Veterans Day weekend, historic downtown Pensacola, Fla., and sugary white sand beaches, then add a running route atop the bluffs overlooking Escambia Bay, where runners will welcome the day with a beautiful sunrise, and you have the perfect recipe for the 11th Annual Pensacola Marathon, scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 8th.

The race begins and ends at Veterans Memorial Park on the bayfront and winds its way along a 13.1 mile circuit of the city for the half marathoners and a full 26.2 mile loop for the full marathon runners.

The course features jaunts through Pensacola’s historic neighborhoods and the downtown district, live bands and cheering Pensacolians.

The finish line is next to the Nation’s only replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.  The Pensacola Marathon is also a Boston Qualifier.  November in Pensacola provides great weather for a race where temperatures average 60 degrees.

Pensacola Marathon – come for the challenge, stay for the fun!
