The Divas Half Marathon will follow a very picturesque course that showcases the best of Punta Gorda! Starting at Laishley Park, this loop course begins with extremely scenic water views. Viewing the beautiful Peace River for 70% of the course, runners experience the breathtaking Harborwalk pathway. Next, participants venture over the Tamiami Trail Bridge to Bayshore Live Oak Park to experience the other side of the gorgeous river. Then, cross back over Tamiami Trail to Gilchrist Park to experience more magnificent waterfront views. Finally, racers will celebrate their victory in true Diva style at Liashley Park! Along the way, runners will enjoy our “Diva stations” including our famous Boa & Tiara station.
This amazing 5K course was designed to bring you the best of Punta Gorda. If you are not yet ready for the 13.1 challenge but you are a running diva or a diva lover (for all the handsome casanovas), this race
Health & Fitness Boutique
The Health & Fitness Boutique in Punta Gorda will feature exhibitors showcasing the latest trends, designs, and advances in running shoes and apparel. The best thing about the boutique is that it is free and open to the public!
The Health & Fitness Boutique is also the Official Packet Pick-Up Headquarters. Unless VIP Packet Pick-up is purchased, all half marathon participants must pick up their race packets (race bibs, participant shirts, tutus and drawstring bags) at the Health & Fitness Boutique prior to race day.
Packet pickup for this event will be alphabetical by last name; you will not need your bib number to pick up your packet. Photo ID will be required to pick up your packet.
If you cannot pick up your race packet yourself at the Boutique, someone else can pick it up for you. In order for them to do so, they MUST have a photo of your ID. We suggest texting a picture of your driver's license to whoever is picking up your packet.
