Amy 's thoughts:

I've run this race at least four times as I live in Ft. Myers. When I was awaiting the hotel bus after a recent marathon in another part of Florida, two ladies asked me about this half marathon. They were interested, but were a little hesitant because of the name. I want to write this to assure everyone this is a solid race that everyone can enjoy. Several of my friends with children run the relay with them. Sure, there are Hooters waitresses at the finish line party, and beer is served. The young women have on lots more clothing than most people you can see at the beach: shirts and shorts. The beer is kept in a roped-off area and they check who they are serving carefully.

The proceeds go to one of our local hospitals. Hooters sponsors it; originally, the course was between the Fort Myers Beach Hooters and the Cleveland Ave Hooters, hence the name. Now the beach one is not involved; the course includes scenic McGregor Blvd, where Thomas Alva Edison wintered and planted some beautiful palm trees, and an out and back over the Caloosahatchee River.

Lots of town folks turn out for this one, so there is decent crowd support. The finish line party is worth sticking around for, especially if you are a wings fan. There is a lot of more traditional post race food as well, and the volunteers are outstanding. Shirts are gender specific and nice enough to wear on a weekend, if you wear your race shirts for casual wear.

Cute age group awards and medals for all finishers. Come run with us! Ft. Myers Track Club.
