Runners and swimmers join us Memorial Day Saturday evening May 25th at 6 pm to pick up your race bibs and packets at the largest Pub Crawl in Florida for the following weekend';s run and/or swim on Saturday, June 1, 2013 on Clearwater Beach. All runners and swimmers will get in free to kick off Memorial Day in downtown Dunedin with a free BEER at 3 different locations in downtown Dunedin, FL. Runners/swimmers will check in from 6 7:30 pm at Flanagans Irish Pub in Dunedin where youll get a free beer, then at 7:30 well crawl to the Dunedin Brewery for another free beer and a final free drink after 9 pm at The Chica Boom Room! This is our biggest holiday celebration race of the year so invite family and friends. They too can indulge in the pub crawl celebration for just $5 which includes the 3 free drafts but its FREE to all race participants! Then on Saturday, June 1, at 9 am on Clearwater Beach just north of Pier 60 youll reach a finish line where Uncle Sam waits for you to cross and gives EVERY runner a cash prize as they finish! This is an out and back run along the coastline of Clearwater Beach with runner check in race day only beginning at 8 am. This is a highly anticipated quick sell out for the race so please register early and do NOT count on race day registration. We want to close registration before Memorial Day so we can see you all at the Pub Crawl the Saturday before the race! Its a post-race party that kicks off the race. The 5K run is a finishers race so framed awards will only go to the first 50 finishers (25 males and 25 females overall). The good part is that the first 20 males and first 20 females will receive a $20 bill from our finish line Uncle Sam as you come across the line. The next ten finishers (five males and 5 females) will get a $10 bill and the ENTIRE rest of the finishers wearing their official Memorial Day Dash For The Cash race bib will be handed a $5 bill. Of course all runners will get the finishers beads and race tshirt and we have a post-race party that will make you feel as big as the statue of liberty! At 10 am June 1st well begin the race for our Ocean Mile Liberty swim. This too is a finishers race but no cash on this one Im afraid. The Ocean Mile Liberty swim begins on the north side of Pier 60 and is a mile out and back swim along the coast. We have two divisions in the Liberty swim. You can swim the entire mile out an back or you can exit at the end of the mlle and run the final mile back to the finish line at Pier 60. Awards will go to the first 10 males and first 10 female finishers in both divisions and youll be identified by the color of your wristband so you have to decide by race morning if you are going to do the full swim or the swim run.
