"It's a 5K on Pensacola Beach with a Jamaican Festival, Music, Drinks, Boardshorts, Bikini's and Things that Float. It's my type of run!!!"

- Adam Guess, Race Director

Run in the Sun

What happens when a run is more than just a run? The Boardshorts and Bikini 5K happens. We are kicking off Bamboo Willie's Jamaican Music Festival with a unique 5K.  Why do we call it the Boardshorts and Bikini 5K? Because we encourage  everyone to come run in their swimsuit (swimsuits are not mandatory to participate in this race). The reason being, right after the run you'll be properly dressed to jump in and watch or join the "Anything the Floats" races behind Bamboo Willies. "You gotta sweat before you get wet"


Some races have a post race party, the Boardshorts and Bikinis 5K has a Jamaican Music Festival.  With Run Pensacola bringing this race to Pensacola Beach , there's no reason not make the September 3rd weekend a true Beach weekend. With live music, Anything that Floats Races, and drink specials this is an event you don't want to miss. 


The run will take place on the streets of Pensacola Beach and follow the standard Pensacola Beach 5k course.  it will starts and finish at 4 Casino Beach Blvd. Pensacola, Beach FL.  Just look for the iconic Beach ball water tower and you know you're in the right spot. The start cannon goes off at 8:00am Sunday Morning, Sept 3, 2017.


Awards will be presented to overall top male and female winners, the top 3 men and women in each age group along with the top 3 men and women in the walking division.  Awards will be ready for pick up after the race at Bamboo Willies.
