GFNY Florida Marathon marks the first running event of the GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series this Sunday, October 24

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Endurance Sports Series is back in the United States with the inaugural running event, GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring. The course is USATF certified and the flat and fast route makes it the perfect race for runners wanting to score a personal best. GFNY Marathon Florida also offers a half marathon distance and 4.2-mile fun run around the Raceway.

The course starts before dawn with a big loop under the bright floodlights of the Sebring International Raceway. The flat course is divided into three out-and-back legs, which provides a fantastic racer and spectator experience. With ample aid stations, music and cheer-on stations, the race is destined to be a party for runners.

It’s a natural step for us to bring GFNY also into running” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme, “Both Lidia and I are lifelong runners, having run combined over 50 marathons. It’s always only been a matter of time for us when we would launch GFNY running and we’re excited it’s finally happening. GFNY Marathon Florida Sebring is the first of over many more marathons to come.
