    As we transition from summer to fall the island will host a trio of runs to test your skills while supporting some great causes. First up is the annual Hurricane Run 5K and Fun Run sponsored by the Port City Pacers on Saturday, September 9 at 810am. Headquartered at the east end, this race starts and finishes at the Sea Lab after winding its way through Pass Drury neighborhoods. The 5K race offers participants as many as 16 age divisions to compete in for top honors. Packet pick-up and race day registration will take place at the Sea Lab from 645-750am. Proceeds support DI Fire and Rescue and the DI Sea Lab scholorship program. For additional information visit the Port City website at pcpacers.org or check out their Facebook page. On Saturday, October 21, the 2nd Annual Tri the Gulf Triathlon is expected to attract more than 300 participants to swim (600 yds.), bike (16.7 mi.) and run (3.25 mi.). This event is sponsored by the Mobile Bar Association and will be headquartered at the Isle Dauphine complex with the swim portion of this “sprint triathlon” getting underway at 7am sharp. The bike and run course will involve a number of island streets (ex. Bienville, Orleans, Hernando, Iberville, Indian Place, etc.) as well as the Dauphin Island Bridge until the event concludes no later than 10am.  DI Police and volunteers will be stationed throughout the course to assist with traffic and to ensure safety. On Saturday, October 28, hundreds of participants are expected to converge on the island’s east end for the 2nd Annual Live On Adam 5K & 1K Fun Run. The event is held in honor of Adam Clark, the youngest victim of the Sailboat Regatta tragedy that occurred in 2015.  All proceeds will benefit the Adam Clark Foundation which has previously donated to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, the South Alabama Chapter of the Red Cross and provided scholarships to graduating seniors at Baker High where he attended school. The Live On Adam 5K & 1K Fun Run will gather at the Sea Lab that morning and begin at 810am (Fun Run 910am) and follow a similar path to that of the Hurricane Run (Bienville Blvd. and Pass Drury area neighborhoods).  NOTE: Island residents and property owners are encouraged to make note of these dates and times so you can avoid traffic delays.
