THIS RACE IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT AND THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! You ARE IN!
We will see you tomorrow morning at Caddy’s Pub! Happy New Year!!! You can check in at Caddy’s Pub 20025 Gulf Blvd. Indian Shores, FL 33785, as early as 8:15 a.m. REMAIN ON THE CADDY’S PROPERTY after you check in as Suzanne will walk you together as a group out to the beach start so we can begin our 5K run/walk at 9:00 am. As we walk to the crosswalk that we are permitted to use please remain in the pedestrian lane so that we avoid any cars along Gulf Blvd. Safety is paramount with this many people crossing over at once to head to our start/finish line on the beach. The run is a perfect 1.55 miles south out and back to your 5K finish line. When you head back to Caddy’s Pub use the EXACT same crossing path. It’s not too far out of the way and ensures a safe morning.
PARKING IS GOING TO BE TIGHT WITH A SOLD OUT RACE! Most of you will end up parking off of the Caddy’s property so prepare to walk up to a half mile to the venue. We will have check bags available. This race is PERFECT for an Uber or Lyft from a nearby location.
Parking of course is first suggested at Caddy’s Pub 20025 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores, FL 33785. For those who arrive a bit later, you can park either a half mile (.5) north of the Pub in the “narrows” which is the asphalt side of the roadway where there are clearly marked parking spaces. Another option is to park .75 miles just south the Pub off of Gulf Blvd. in the County’s Tiki lot. In this case you may want to drop off any passengers and use this as a short warm up run to the venue. Please abide by any pay stations or meters if you do not park in the Caddy’s lot which is free.
Remember the race WILL NOT be responsible for towing or tickets so please read all signage and do not park in local businesses or in front of a residential property. Okay enough of that!
Your race bib number assignment is attached in this email with your waiver. Please print your waiver and write your bib number on top so we can expedite check in when you arrive. We will have them on site if you don’t have access to a printer but you can also screenshot your bib number from this email attachment. This expedites morning check in greatly.
This race is in the FUEL series. This means we pride ourselves on turning whiskey, been, tequila and other fun libations into runs that benefit our teens from Finish Lines For Scholarship’s 501c3. You can choose from any of the long sleeve technical shirts we put out for you. Tomorrow we are using all unisex sizes. You can make one of 3 choices from our largest medals of the year…choose from the amazing CHEESBURGER, HOT DOG OR KING CRAB. Be sure to only take one when you arrive back at the Pub after your run. I will gather many of you together out front for a large group photo that we promote throughout the year. You can find any race day photos taken posted on the Facebook group: Xanadu Race Management Photos (friend us now) We encourage you to post beautiful beach run pics here as well.
Though we do not issue age group or top finisher awards at this event, you are each being electronically timed so please wear your bib number on the front of the shirt you will be finishing the 5K wearing with the 4 pins available at check in. Your bib number must be visible as you come through the finish line as there are no timing mats on the beach and you are each keyed into timing as you reach the first cone of the finish line shoot. Results will be posted later in the day tomorrow at www.727CanRace.com
SEE YOU LATER 2019 and good riddance! Tomorrow morning we ring in the new year with the first 2020 finish line in Florida. Enjoy our perfect running weather and the best scenery in the world! Cheers 2020! HERE WE COME
Hugs, Hope, and Happiness From Suzanne and Michael Mannino
