Next, you’ll leave the circuit via one of the north exit tunnels, a narrow tunnel with a drop and rise that will send you off onto the course like a rocket. You’ll complete a circuit on roads named after celebrated NASCAR drivers, passing alongside the famous aerospace school, just meters away from the major runways at Daytona International Airport. At the end of the 12,4 mile course, you’ll turn back at Daytona International Speedway to prepare for your run.

You’ll finish in the FanZone to the roar of the crowds, like countless sporting legends who have come before you. Maybe you won’t hit the speeds that NASCAR drivers clock, but it’s sure to be a fast run, fueled by the enthusiasm and energy of the crowds. It’s also sure to be an experience you’ll never forget!
