Destin’s 5th Bayou, Bay & Back Race


A Destin event for all runners, the 5th Annual Bayou, Bay and Back race features a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run, 5K Run/Walk, 10K and Half Marathon.

All races begin and end at Clement Taylor Park in Destin and tour through scenic areas of the city and along some waterfront. The half and full marathon course yields breathtaking views of the Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin Harbor, and East Pass, as it leads you through Destin, along a 4-mile undeveloped stretch of Okaloosa Island and back.

Sponsored by Shoreline Church, a portion of race proceeds benefits the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) of Northwest Florida State College, committed to sustaining and providing optimum utilization of the Choctawhatchee Basin watershed.

This is a must event for local and visiting runners.
