June 13, 2023

Super weekend with GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring on October 21 followed by the GFNY Florida Sebring cycling race on October 22

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – On October 21-22, 2023, two endurance races take place in Florida’s home of endurance racing: On October 21, runners will take on a marathon and half marathon race from the Barn at Paso Fino. On October 22, one thousand cyclists from across the USA and 50+ countries will ride on a challenging 95-mile cycling marathon in Highlands and Hardee Counties.

GFNY Florida Sebring cycling race

GFNY Florida Sebring offers riders a challenging 95-mile race course with 707 ft of elevation gain. Riders will tackle a fast but demanding course, considered the hardest and biggest road race of Florida, with complete police-moderated intersections, fully stocked aid stations and mechanical and SAG van support.

Race week activities will take place at the Barn at Paso Fino. It includes the fun GFNY happy hour on Friday afternoon and a group rides on Friday and Saturday morning. On Sunday, the race will start at the Barn at Paso Fino at 7:30am. From the Barn at Paso Fino the race enters the closed-to-traffic lane on the Highway Route 66. Five miles later, riders enter a scenic 35-mile loop through Hardee County, where the wind will be the main challenge aside from the high pace.

GFNY Sebring is both a festive and exciting season closer for North American cycling, as well as a cycling highlight of the year for the beauty of the race course, on-course safety and high level of organization for a major cycling event in Florida.

GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring

The 3rd GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring offers runners a full and half marathon. Start and finish take place at the Barn at Paso Fino. The course is flat and lightning fast on roads dedicated specifically for GFNY athletes. The USATF measured course is not only a Boston and NYC qualifier but also a chance for runners to qualify for the Wanda World Marathon Majors Age Group World Championship.

GFNY Marathon Florida gives a chance for runners to be a part of the festive GFNY Florida race week activities, but without bikes. The same high-level of organization carried out for cyclists is offered to runners: frequent, fully stocked aid stations, a festive fan zone, and athlete perks.
