The Naples Coconut Run was founded in 2015 by two band moms, Laura Puckett and Jeannie Hautmann, as a means to cover the travel expense of band students at Naples High School. With the help of Gulf Coast Runners and Mitch Norgart, the Naples Coconut Run has been a huge success since it's inception. Runner's have come from all over the world to enjoy the 5k journey through the streets of Beautiful Naples on the Gulf, beginning and ending on the beach. Each year the unique coconut trophies have become even more creative. They are highly prised by the running elite. We do thank all of our sponsors for helping make this run a success.
