BATTLE OF BREVARD

Presented by Space Coast Runners

8th annual BATTLE OF BREVARD FUN RUN | Lori Wilson Park, Cocoa Beach
Wednesday, August 3rd
| 6:30PM
FREE event!
   
 
WHAT'S THIS BATTLE ALL ABOUT?
PARTICIPATION! It's simple. The blue ribbon award will be given to the town/city with the most participants. Every participant who registers at the fun run for the winning town/city will be presented with the very popular, hang it where everyone can see it BLUE RIBBON!
 
This year's event will be in Memory of Rick Foresteire, a Rockledge resident and fellow Space Coast Runner, who passed away this past May. Nancy, his wife, has been a long time SCR member and is a past lead of the Battle of Brevard Run. Rick loved to run on the beach so we will include a beach route as well! 
Water and Popsicles for all after the run! 
 
Gather all your neighbors, family members or friends that live in your town/city and encourage them to come run or walk on Wednesday, August 3. Town/City with the most participants (points) wins the battle.
 
DIRECTIONS
  1. Arrive at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach prior to the 6:30PM start so you can sign in at the Space Coast Runners tent. You must sign in for your city/town to receive credit. Parents may sign for a child under 18 that is present.
  2. OPTIONAL (but highly encouraged): Participant may wear something with their town/city name on it or their town/city's designated color (see list below) to the event to show town/city pride and to coordinate with other town/city resident participants.
  3. Go out there and run or walk to represent your City/Town. The course will be set for a 2 mile distance but you can do more or less. No specific mileage is required. You can run on the beach, on sidewalk or a combination of both. It's up to you.
  4. Share your Battle of Brevard experience on social media!
Every submission counts as 1 point for your city/town. The city/town with the most points at the end of the day will be declared the winner. We'll be handing out the highly coveted BLUE RIBBON to every participant from the winning town/city after the big announcement. 
 
REIGNING CHAMPION

Merritt Island is a 2-time winner as well (2017, 2018).
Rockledge scored a victory in 2015. Who will win the Blue Ribbon this year?
 

 
WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE!
