Race event commences at 7:30 am sharp by the Fort Hamer Rowing Facility and goes over Fort Hamer Bridge to the south side and enters the Waterlefe Subdivison up Winding Stream Road to the signiture circle back to the bridge. The 5K then turns to the finish and the 10K into the beautiful The Islands of the Manatee River Subdivision, then back to the finish. There will be chip timing by Lakeshore Athletic Service providers to the Chicago Marathon, colorful safety yellow moisture wicking Leslie Jordan shirts. Special crafted awards to winners and categories three deep from 9 & under to 80+. Great after party with food from a dozen area resturants including adult beverages with proper I.D. All 5K/10K finishers receive signature Ft Hamer Bridge medal neck/key chain medals crafted by Ashworth medals providers for the Boston Marathon. (you definitely want this commemorative momento)

Plenty of water stops are planned to keep you hydrated. 

The children participating in all races will be treated to kid's activities with face painting.

After race festivities include Under River actiivities:

Manatee County Youth Rowing will be hosting an open house and will have coaches, athletes and parents available for questions about fall, spring and summer programs. Athletes will give tours of the boathouse. Boats will be set up so that race participants can see the boats up close and learn the basics of the boats. ERG's (rowing machines) will be set up for simulating rowing experience. So enjoy an adventure with Manatee River Kayak and Paddleboard operated out of Fort Hamer Park in Parrish.
