O’Riley’s and RunPensacola.com have teamed up to produce a brand new annual Running event. “The O’Riley’s 26.2.” There will only be 262 slots available and the entry fee will be $26.20. Sounds too good to be true?  just wait, it gets better. If you are lucky enough to snag one of the 262 spots you’ll receive all the great amenities you’ve become accustomed to from a RunPensacola.com event: An amazing race t-shirt, out race food, (pre) and/or post race drinks, your very own finishers medal, Professionally managed start/finish line, a 26.2 race sticker for the back of your car,  a fully closed off course (that’s right, no cars/traffic/ pedestrian on the course, the entire 26.2 will be barricaded strictly for the participants), Race bibs and a cannon start.  To make sure you won’t get overwhelmed at the start, we’re instituting a brand new staggered start process(called the “flip cup start process”). Unlike most races here in panhandle, you’d don’t have to get up early for this event, you won’t need to lay low and waste a Friday night due to a morning race. In keeping with the 26.2 theme the Orielys 26.2 will start at 2:62pm (that’s 3:02pm).  With the later start we are also able to offer a new PRE-RACE party that will flow through the entire length of the race with will merge in to the POST-RACE party.  Thats right, a new running with at PRE and POST race celebration!!!  The course is also designed to be spectator friendly with screaming crowds all along the race route. Yes, we know that 26.2 sounds like a haunting distance but we know with proper training (even if you’ve never ran a step before) anybody, and I mean ANYBODY can make it to the finish line. After all, it’s only 26.2 feet. That’s right,  the race is exactly 26.2 feet from start to finish.  Nope, it’s not a joke this is a real event slapped right int he middle of a party. This will be like no other race you’ve even done. Costumes are encouraged and training video is requested. The race is limited to 262 people so register now before it’s too late. If the race sells out before you can register, don’t worry, you can still come enjoy the party, with food trucks, beers special, and entertainment.
