Post Hurricane Irma update (9-18-2017)

As of today, 9-18-2017, the TeamFootWorks offices remain without AC. FPL says they’ll be fixing our power late tonight so we should be back in full swing tomorrow. Coral Gables has been focused on clearing their streets of debris. We hope to be able to give you more information later this week. We will post updates here as well as on our facebook event page.

    Hello, I don’t see any rules/restrictions listed but was wondering if strollers are allowed. Please advise.

      Strollers are allowed at all of our events. We just ask that you be considerate of other participants and start the race at the back or side so as not to impede or injure other runners and walkers. Remember you and your stroller take up more room that just a runner or walker, so please give yourself and others around you plenty of space to participate safely.
