Run for the Redfish Live Panama City Beach Webcam

World Events, December , Run for the Redfish Panama City Beach
 

Event Information:

 

Run For the Redfish is a certified course featuring a 1/2 marathon, 5k and kids 1 mile fun run benefits bringing awareness about our coastal redfish and it's habitat. This year's run will be held on December 4th, 2010 and starts and ends in beautiful Pier Park.

On December 4, 2010 runners from across the Southeast will participate in the 2nd annual Run for the Redfish in Panama City Beach, Florida, a combined half marathon, 5k run and kids fun run will be held at Pier Park. A portion of the proceeds benefits bringing awareness about our coastal redfish and it's habitat. The run will begin at the Front Beach Road entrance to Pier Park and continue down Front Beach Road, looping back to end at Margaritaville.

Last year, over 600 racers participated and plans for 2010 are to take this signature event to the next level. We'd like to thank our sponsors and volunteers who support this race. We look forward to seeing everyone out on the course in December! The oil spill that flowed into the Gulf of Mexico put unprecedented strain on an already stressed marine ecosystem. While the responsible party, BP, is supposed to reimburse the affected fishermen and efforts have already begun to clean the coastline, little attention is being paid to the Gulf fisheries.

Bluefin tuna have been commercially overfished to the point of near-collapse and this spill directly impacts their spawning grounds. Tarpon, snook and redfish, whose populations were adversely affected by an unusually cold winter, will experience further stress as the oil spreads along the coastline. Even reef fish such as grouper and snapper will suffer as oil settles on the reefs.

The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation aims to fund inspired research that seeks answers to how the oil is impacting the Gulf fisheries. You can help by purchasing Guy's custom design "Save Our Gulf" t-shirts and poster or by making a donation to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation "Save Our Gulf" fund. Proceeds will benefit Gulf fisheries research.

It is our collective responsibility to conserve the marine environment and maintain the biodiversity of the Gulf.
