Back for our 35th year!
Runners, walkers and paddleboard enthusiasts can test their skills and celebrate Ernest Hemingway’s sporting lifestyle by joining us in the Conch Republic on July 20, 2024 during the in-person Hemingway 5k Sunset Run/Walk and Paddleboard Race! The athletic challenges are part of Hemingway Days, a six-day commemoration of the life and work of the author who lived and wrote in Key West for most of the 1930s.
You can run the 5K Sunset Run or Paddle 3 miles in the gorgeous waters off of our magical island; or you can do both and save on your combined registration!
All participants (runners and paddle boarders) will start and finish at the iconic Southernmost Point buoy! Be sure to plan to spend time at our famous after party on the beach!
