The Run for the Reef is less than three weeks away. Event coordinators have been working on their parts of the event. It is time to get together and determine what has been done and what else needs to be done prior to that weekend.
We will meet this Thursday, September 26 at 6 pm at the Visitor Information Center/Navarre Chamber Conference room (enter through the Sound Side doors). If you are interested in helping out with the Run come on out – we’ll find a place for you.
The Sea Turtle Conservation Center, located at the entrance to Navarre Beach Park will host the 2013 Kid’s 1 Mile Fun Run at our 5th Annual Run for the Reef. Parents bring your kid’s out and let your kid’s run wild….at least for a mile along the nature path in the park. You don’t even have to wake up early for this one. Race starts approximately 8:45 AM so mosey on out. It’s only $15 and the race shirt is included. Download the Kid’s Fun Run specific registration form here or register on Active.com.

Mike Sandler snapped this photo on a recent dive of the Gulf Reef site.
