Blue Angels Rock N Fly 3/19

Posted on: February 3rd, 2016 by Candy

The Blue Angels Rock N Fly Half Marathon and 5K will begin at 8 a.m. Both races start and finish in the heart of NAS Pensacola on Radford and Fred Bauer (at the Starbuck sign). The half marathon course takes you through and around various landmarks such as the glorious Barrancas National Cemetery, the National Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola Light House, Sherman Cove, and great waterfront views of Pensacola Bay and the entry to the Gulf of Mexico. It may be too much for some but for a Rock N Fly runner could it get any better?

Every participant in the half marathon or 5K will receive a t-shirt and poster! In addition, half marathon athletes will take home a finishers medal. Start training today for this event. The Rock N Fly Hippie tour will surely sell out in 2016.

For participants just wanting to show off hippie or rocker gear we are ready to see what you got. Just remember these awards only go three deep for the best hippie and rocker costume awards. In addition, we will have the hula championship for the longest individual to hula hoop. After the race, stick around for our huge post-race party!!! Jam out with our bands and enjoy food, fun, and music! You think you have what it takes to Rock N Fly?

Rock N Fly proceeds will benefit the Navy Ball and Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. If running for a cause matters when picking your racing events then the Rock N Fly is must event to schedule into your calendar.
