    Destin's Bayou, Bay & Beach 5K, 10K & Half Marathon

    Destin's Bayou, Bay & Beach 5K Run/Walk, 10K & Half Marathon sponsored by Shoreline Church is set for Jan. 23, 2016! The 10K and Half Marathon courses are USA Track & Field-certified. While all courses are set alongside Destin waterways, the half marathon course yields breathtaking views of the Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin Harbor, and East Pass, as it leads you through Destin, along a 4-mile undeveloped stretch of Okaloosa Island, and back.

    This year's theme is Beach Bums. Wear your floral shirts, floppy hats, board shorts, bikinis, floaties, sunglasses - whatever says beach lifestyle to you!  

    We welcome Jeff Galloway Method participants for the half marathon. The only requirement is that participants keep pace to meet the 3-hour time limit.
