It may seem like there’s a new 5k popping up every weekend, but not all of them will be as fun as the Blue Angels Rock N Fly Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk. This race is already set up to be a blast, and you’ll want to participate in it, too. It’s a family-friendly race that’s going to be fun whether you are going out to take home the gold or just want to enjoy a nice stroll with your family and friends. Get the details below and get ready to race for the finish line.
The Blue Angels Rock N Fly Half Marathon & 5k Run/Walk will happen on Saturday, March 23. Keep in mind that you’ll have to be there bright and early because the race starts at 8 a.m. at the NAS Navy Base in Pensacola, and it will last until 11 a.m.
One of the best parts of this race is that there are different options for those who want different experiences from the race. If you want to walk or are not ready to take on a whole half-marathon, you can easily opt for the 5k. That gives you the chance to complete something that’s a big slower-paced and more manageable if you’re not used to running all the time. But if you are already a runner and are looking for a way to challenge yourself, the half-marathon is the way to go. If you choose this latter option, you’ll even get a finisher’s medal at the end of the race.
