Run the Mid-Bay Connector 5K
Posted on January 3, 2014
Tired of a long commute from your real estate in north Okaloosa County to the beaches of Destin or South Walton? Well, get ready to shave a few minutes off your drive with the opening of the new Mid-Bay Connectory this January!
It’s no secret that the Mid-Bay Bridge is the quickest way to Destin, but having to fight 14 traffic lights and Niceville morning traffic doesn’t always make it feel that way. Previously you needed to venture through the community of Niceville and Bluewater Bay to reach the Mid-Bay Bridge and cross to Destin. With new interchanges at SR 85, SR 285 and SR 20, you can now bypass Niceville and reach the beach much faster! The connector will open in early January, but before it does, come out and run the new blacktop during the Mid-Bay Connector 5K and Half Marathon!
On January 4, meet up at 8am to run scenic portions of this new interchange. After the race stick around for food, awards and entertainment as we celebrate this historic opening. Sign up today; all proceeds benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
