After many weeks of waiting and watching for a good window of weather and sea state, the Reef Maker of Orange Beach installed the last of the Marine Sanctuary Eco System Reefs in the Gulf off of Navarre Beach County Park.   This deployment of reefs completes the set of three reef sites that make up the Marine Sanctuary at Navarre Beach County Park.  Two additional sites  are in Santa Rosa Sound just off the north shore of the park.

The newest reef addition  provide a great snorkel opportunity…and a fun way to cool off  after the October 13th Run for the Reef 5K

The Marine Sanctuary Committee has selected Saturday October 16th, 2010  as  the date for the  2nd annual Run For The Reef 5k Race and 1 Mile Kid’s Fun Run.   Mark your calendars for this exciting event.  The course on Navarre Beach is one of the area favorites and the weather is perfect for it in the fall.

Last year’s inaugural race featured over 300 runners and raised over $8,000 for  the committee’s efforts to establish snorkeling and diving reefs at Navarre Beach.   There will be  awards in all age categories and door prizes and you won’t want to miss the great after party.

We look forward to welcoming back last years participants and plan to see a lot of new faces.   Look for details as the event planning kicks into gear.  We  also look forward to renewing with many of our sponsors from last year also that helped make the event successful.  Spread the word and help us Make Navarre Snorkelicious!!
