Event Details

Organized by the Sailfish Striders, a local running club based in the south Florida town of Stuart, the Martin County Half Marathon is set to be run on an entirely new course for its 2008 running, along the streets that run through Florida's Hutchinson Island, just to the east of the town. The new course is designed to take runners through a three-mile stretch of the local area known as Sewall's Point, as well as past the Indian River Plantation Golf Club and along the island's Ocean Boulevard.

The out-and-back loop course for the race will take runners on a counter-clockwise direction through the island and through Stuart, starting at Jensen Beach Public Beach. From there, runners follow the course across the Northeast Causeway Boulevard to the town of Jensen Beach, through Ocean Breeze Park along Indian River Drive, which becomes Sewalls Point Road. Runners follow the course all the way down to Sewalls Point and Port Sewall, where they make the turn and then start heading back northward along South River Road to East Ocean Boulevard, which takes them back over to Hutchinson Island and the last few miles toward the finish line along the oceanfront.
