runsignup-blueNote: The 2020 race is a virtual event. Registration details are included below.

South Florida’s A1A Highway is the setting for the annual late autumn running of the race known in past years as Boca Raton PAL (or Sun Capital) Half Marathon & 5K, which draws a few hundred runners and walkers each year and serves as a fundraiser for the Boca Raton Police Athletic League.

Fast and flat thanks to both its south Florida location and run on paved surfaces throughout, the race starts and finishes at Boca Raton’s Spanish River Park on Ocean Avenue.

From there, the race follows an out-and-back route over to Deerfield Beach, and unfolds largely along the A1A before bringing runners back to the park for the finish line festivities.

What can runners expect along the highway race route at this race? Plenty of the scenery for which Boca and the Miami metro area is so well known, namely palm trees and sunshine, as well as gorgeous views of the water — both the waves of the Atlantic crashing against the shoreline as well as the Spanish River flowing by along the highway.
