Amelia Islander

ZOOMA Florida Half Marathon and 5K

Dec 30, 2013 11:44AM
On Saturday, January 18, ladies are invited to soak in the Florida sun and feel the sand between their toes as they enjoy a fit girls’ weekend getaway on awe-inspiring Amelia Island. The event is being hosted at The Ritz-Carlton.

Guests will be welcomed to the ZOOMA weekend with a Fitness Expo at the host hotel and encouraged to take in the oceanfront sunset as you drink a cocktail (or mocktail if you prefer) at a sponsored happy hour before your post-race meal on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, awaken early to run a flat and scenic half marathon or 5K. After you cross the finish line, you can celebrate your accomplishment with friends at a fun After-Party Expo on the oceanfront lawn at The Ritz-Carlton.  Enjoy your adrenaline and wine-fueled buzz with live music, massages, shopping, recovery yoga, and lots of empowering girls’ weekend energy.

The half marathon will be held at 8 a.m. and the 5K at 8:30 a.m. ZOOMA is unique among other women’s races in that it is literally “run by women” (pun intended!)  ZOOMA’s Founder and Executive Director is a woman, mother, and runner, and the staff are all women. Zooma’s primary goal is to execute events that cater to the real needs and wants of women runners.
