The 4th Annual Run for the Reef 5K saw the highest participation level yet with 317 registered participants and almost all registrants showing up to participate in this year’s event.    It was a gorgeous panhandle day.  Participants enjoyed perfect fall morning weather, and great sunshine for the after party on the pier deck, with plenty of food and drink.

Local artist Kelley Grace, who designed the race shirts for two years now, was on hand to sign runner’s shirts.  Two original prints of the 2011 and 2012 Race Shirt artwork were auctioned off during the after party at a silent auction.

The quilt raffle was quite the hit at the after party also, as a lucky winner took home the beautiful quilt hand  made and donated by Lenore Nicholson.

Technical difficulties with the scoring delayed the announcement of the results.  Some results were not able to be provided by the end of the event and will be posted here and on active.com after they are complete.  Participants that won an award and not able to receive it may view the results for their award listing, and pick it up next week starting Monday October 15 at the Navarre Visitor Information Center VIC).  We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience.  The awards will be available at the VIC through Saturday October 20.

The Navarre Beach Leaseholders and Residents Association (NBLRA) will be a Prime Sponsor of the third annual Run for the Reef 5K.    After being a race shirt logo sponsor last year the organization voted to increase their role in the event to that of a prime sponsorship.  The move indicates their strong and continued support for the event and the Marine Sanctuary effort to establish snorkeling and diving reefs off Navarre Beach County Park.

A check presentation will be held at the next NBLRA meeting on May 21st with press and the public invited.

The Marine Sanctuary Committee is thrilled to have the NBLRA in this role and is looking forward to the October 15th event with great anticipation.  Already sponsorships for the event have increased over last year’s total and participation is sure to be high.  We’ll be unveiling a new logo this year and will enjoy a great award’s ceremony on the newly expanded Navarre Beach Pier Deck.   It’s early but we’ve already gotten a few registrants and have distributed registration forms to the Navarre Pier and Run With It shoes in Fort Walton.   Race registration is available on line at active.com and sponsorship registration is available online on this site’s Run  Sponsorship page.

Thanks NBLRA!!
