COVID-19 UPDATE August, 14th, 2020

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus the City of Port Orange has passed Executive Order 43 stating that the City will not be allowing any special events until after December 31st.  Because of this we will not be able to hold the Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon and 5K as in-person event and we will be transitioning the event to a Virtual Only event.  All currently registered runners will be transitioned to the virtual event.  If you have no registered you can still sign up for the virtual event and help us support the Volusia County High School Athletics Programs.


The West Volusia Runners Welcome You to the

Ninth Annual Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon & 5K

There is no better way to spend a crisp, cool, autumn morning than running and there won't be a more beautiful run than through the streets along the ocean and intercoastal waterway of Volusia County.

There is no better venue than The Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon & 5k. Both routes begin in near the base of the Dunlawton bridge Port Orange, FL. The Half Marathon route will take runners south to loop around the historic Ponce Inlet lighthouse with the return trip along the Intracoastal Waterway and over the bridge to finish adjacent to Aunt Catfish's On the River.  The 5K route is a scenic out and back along the mainland side of the Intracoastal to the same finish line and great party!  

There is no better place to be on Saturday, October 24th, 2020.  Lighthouse Loop will raise funds to support the ten public high school athletic departments of Volusia County.  In our first eight years the West Volusia Runners have successfully raised over $160,000 for our student athletes. We are excited to continue to add to the effort with another successful fundraiser in 2020!

All Race Proceeds Benefit Volusia County High School Athletes

Lighthouse Loop Half Marathon and 5K was established with the goal of helping local high school athletes.  Over the last 8 years West Volusia Runners have donated ALL of the proceeds from this event --  over $170,000 to the athletic departments of the 10 Volusia County public high schools.

Each high school is invited to staff a water stop along the half marathon course.  After the race runners vote for their favorite stop and that school gets and extra bonus!!  

Don't miss this fun fundraiser for our local schools!!
