NEVER QUIT 5K & 10K (and 1 mile)
This map shows the NEVER QUIT 5K & 10K route (The run 5k/10k & 1 Mile run/walk will take place on the beach during low tide . See tide chart here. (Low tide is at 7:12am so this makes for a giant wide open hard backed sand beach compared to NQ 2017 which had a lowtide of 5:30am giving less hard packed sand to run on) Even though this map shows a path on a street, the run is entirely on the beach on hard packed sand. (Sand is hard packed to the point that it feel as if you are running on the street/concrete)
Water stops are at the start and finish and at 16th Ave. South. Port-a-lets are at the Sea-Walk Pavilion and at 16th Ave. South, 3 blocks before the turn-around.
Run Start and Finish location:
The run will start directly in front of the Four Points Sheraton/Quality Suites, which is at the most Easterly end of Beach Blvd, Jacksonville Beach. (Take Beach Blvd. to the Atlantic Ocean and you will run into the start line.)
The Turn around (mid point) for the 5k is: 25th Ave. South, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250
