Sarasota's Favorite Race is October 20, 2019
The First Watch Sarasota Half, Relay and 10K moved to October in 2019 due to construction issues. The date changed, but everything else wonderful is the same.
Expect a scenic route, great on course support, tech shirt, delicious post-race party with all kinds of good eats (and beer) and of course that big, bright, blingy dolphin medal.
Stay tuned for more things to love about First Watch Sarasota Half.

Last month, I started a series on my favorite things about the First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon. I'm promoting the race as a BibRave Pro, but also because I really love this race. It's one of my favorite courses 'cause it's interesting and challenging.
The event includes a Half Marathon, a 10K and a Half Relay. That means there's a race for every type of runner or walker. Today, I want to tell you about St. Armands Circle. It's a charming part of the race and the city of Sarasota.

2. St. Armands Circle
St. Armands Circle has a variety of shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Click here for a current list. It's a fun and historical place. If you're looking for souvenirs or a one-of-a-kind gift, you'll find it here.
Runners see part of St. Armands early in the race. I recommend you make a plan to explore St. Armands before or after the race. Do some window shopping or grab a bite. Most restaurants have outdoor seating which makes for fun people-watching.
St. Armands, Lido Key, Longboat Key, Bird Key
Sarasota has some of the most beautiful beaches around. During the race, runners enter St. Armands from the Ringling Bridge side. As you can see below, there is plenty of shoreline up and down Lido Key. St. Armands Circle is an excellent way to start, finish or breakup a day at the beach.
