The KBLHR is held every 2nd Saturday of November and is the oldest 10K race in South Florida. Starting in 2002, I was the right-hand (wo)man of the previous race director, Jim Brewster, one of the founding members of the race. On the 30th anniversary of the race, Jim handed the reins to Jill Gomez. With the help of a wonderful “race crew” and many local volunteers, we put together a 10K and 5K running race that runs through Bill Baggs State Park and into the streets of Key Biscayne. Giving people on and off the Key a wonderful race to run or walk – and hopefully motivating them to get out and exercise more.
The KBLHR also donates all of their net profit (usually $8K-$10K a year) to the various charities who volunteer for us.
