Creative Writers & Content Providers

Can you write creative and compelling content that inspires? Are you known to your friends as the Grammar King/Queen?  Do you have an eye for layout and design? Sommer Sports is looking for creative writers to help create content for our websites, social media, and our new Be Inspiring online magazine. Much of the content will be user generated by our athletes and partners and will just need to be edited and proofed. We are also looking for someone familiar with publishing an online magazine to help us design and launch our new magazine this spring.

Opportunities

We are always looking for new event venues and race concepts!

Help us create new events!

Do you know of an ideal venue that would be perfect to host a new 5K/10K or Half Marathon?  Do you have an idea for a new concept or themed race you think would be a hit with the local athletes?  Do you have an inside connection at a high profile venue that you feel may entertain hosting an event?  If so, we want to hear from you!  Please visit our new Suggest an Event Page for more details.

Earn free race credits for select opportunities.

Race for Free!

Earn free race credits by helping out at our events, or by helping in our office.  Positions are available to meet almost any schedule.  Just like when you race, the positions might require physical strength as well as the ability to work in a hot and humid environment.

Florida Marathon & Half Marathon

Located in Melbourne on Florida’s Space Coast, between Miami and Jacksonville, east of Orlando and Tampa, the Publix Florida Marathon & 1/2 Marathon makes for a perfect warm winter running destination for runners of all ages and levels. It is held a month after the Disney Marathon. Like a Rock-n-Roll marathon, our event includes up to 20 musical acts along the course of the half and full marathon and half a dozen on the routes of the 10K & 5-k.

It is a walker and headphones-friendly event with a seven hour time limit on the Marathon course.  Half Marathoners have 5 hours to complete the event.

A very scenic route awaits and includes four bridge crossings for the full and two for the half-marathon. The course twice takes marathoners to the beach side barrier island and back to the mainland before concluding at the riverfront Front Street Park in downtown Melbourne. The awards ceremony follows with a party featuring yet another live band.
