Our Sewer Plant "Marathon"

In the 1970s, Hal Goforth was a young biologist and runner who started a lunchtime running group with his co-workers. The group ran a 1.5 mile loop from Seaside to the Sewer Plant (aka Water Treatment Facility). In 1976, Hal took a one year leave to teach Marine Science at Key West Community College. As a going away gift/party, his running co-workers affectionately held the "Goforth Memorial Sewer Plant Marathon" on their regular 1.5 mile course. The tradition continues.
