In addition to the opportunity to meet with past biggest loser celebrities, those taking part in the Run/Walk event will receive medals, T-Shirts and goodie bags for their participation. Online registration for the event is open through December 20th, with the cost of entry increasing, as the deadline gets closer.

This event is held all across the country, however, Panama City Beach offers participants the unique opportunity to walk, jog and run the course with the stunning emerald green waters and sugar-white sands of the Gulf of Mexico as their backdrop. The temperate weather and refreshing ocean breezes typical for late December will ensure that everyone stays comfortable until they cross the finish line.

Those taking part in the challenge can go on to celebrate at Panama City Beach’s Fifth Annual Beach Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve. This yearly tradition takes place in the 1.1 million-square-foot outdoor lifestyle center Pier Park, during which an 800-pound glowing beach ball descends to mark the arrival of the New Year. Earlier in the evening Pier Park also offers a fireworks display and family ball drop, where 10,000 inflatable beach balls are dropped from the sky.
