Pensacola Sports is excited to launch this brand new event on Pensacola Beach which features a Sunrise Run, Open Water Swim, Beach Chamber Challenge Scavenger Hunt, Putt-Putt Golf Tournament, and Go Cart Racing – DeLuna’s Beach Games. The goal is to host a fun family-oriented sports festival, and provide numerous activities without having to leave the beach. The Pensacola Beach area provides perfect venues for a variety of events to be held the same weekend.
DeLuna’s Beach Games gets its name from Don Tristan de Luna, a Spanish conquistador of the 16th century who led an ill-fated expedition to the Pensacola area in 1559, credited as America’s first settlement. Pensacola is rich in history and sports. A scroll of de Luna’s was recently discovered in the sand of Pensacola Beach outlining a competition festival they were planning. Unfortunately, a hurricane changed the course of Pensacola’s history, wiping out the settlement, thus never allowing the festival to take place. Our event is an effort to continue what de Luna started.
