The Runner Who Slayed the Monster

Next month, my company is sponsoring the World Media Run, an opportunity for attendees of the FOLIO: Publishing Summit to participate in a 5k race. FPS is taking place at the Doral Resort, home of the famous Blue Monster Golf Course:

The Blue Monster, home of the 2007 World Golf Championships-CA Championship, has hosted prestigious PGA TOUR events for the past 45 years. In fact, virtually every great name in golf has had a moment of glorious personal triumph on this world-class track. The famous 18th hole, with its signature fountain, was ranked by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 100 Holes in the World.

Early on, the plan was to run around the resort in such a way as to not disturb the golfers. However, it turns out the event planner for the Summit used to manage road races and started thinking that an out-and-back course was kind of lame. Here's what I just learned:

The starting location and finishing location will be by the 18th green/Practice Putting green of the Blue Monster. You will be running the perimeter of the Blue Monster Course, with few modifications. We will close the course during the event.

Keep in mind: If you can't join us in Miami, you can do the run on your own terms and have your results co-mingled at the World Media Run website. Your $25 gets you sweet WMR tech shirt and proceeds go to Special Olympics. Register here.
