St. John Races

Author: Windspree Vacation Homes 

8tuff-all-welcome St. John is the perfect location for anyone who enjoys being active outdoors. Each year the St. John Landsharks put together runs on Thanksgiving and Christmas called the Turkey Trot & Reindeer Ramble, respectively, the annual Triathlon/Aquathon/SUPathon, and the new Ten Bay 10K!

Friends of the Park also offers its share of races: Paddle the Park in early November and the Beach to Beach swim in late May. The Chaotic Kayak races at Gibney Beach are becoming a much-anticipated annual event to benefit Team River Runner.

Lest we forget the popular privately run 8Tuff Miles, which attracts around a thousand entrants each year on the last Saturday in February. This must-conquer course begins with a bang outside the National Park Visitor's Center in Cruz Bay, follows Centerline Road for 8.2 miles, and ends in the ball field across from the Moravian Church in Coral Bay. Finishers receive a prized medal with the date that doubles as a bottle opener. Of course it does. Register early and stay at a Windspree villa, cottage, or apartment - some of which are within walking distance of the course. Run, walk, or watch, the 21st annual 8 Tuff Miles bright and early on February 25, 2017.

Join a race, or become a much needed (and appreciated) volunteer! For more information, contact the St. John Landsharks, Friends of the Park, or 8Tuff Miles directly.
