There are two events, the half marathon and 11K, both of which you can run or walk. Bear in mind that this is the sunniest part of the year and the course runs along the water. Take heed and be prepared with lots of sunblock and a hat. This race would be a great way to run alongside some locals and enjoy the atmosphere.
Closing date for standard entries is 11 February. Registration is $45 ($50 after the 11th) and you can register online.
