27 year old Sarah Maltby from Richmond Hill, Georgia was the first place finisher in the 2015 Diva Run Half-Marathon. Running at a pace of 6.7 mph Maltby finished the race with a time of one hour 24.39 minutes. Eleven year old Mia Chang was one of the youngest  finisher in the 5K. She finished the 5K with the time of 21:49 minutes.

Close to 3500 Divas (females) and Devos (males) came to the beach on Sunday morning to participate in the race. Covered from head to toe in pink, this years Divas braved the elements to prove that there is no reason to quit…EVER! With a silver tiara on their heads and a pink boa strung around their necks, these Divas came from near and far to participate with friends and family for the coveted Diva metal.
For many there is no better way to celebrate at the finish line than with a glass of bubbly and a hug from a “hunky” fireman.

Trauma surgeon, Niqui Kiffin traveled with her mother from Ft Launderdale, Florida. This true American hero is employed at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida and saves lives on a daily basis. Participating in her first Diva Run, 38 year old Dr. Kiffin has been running since January 2014. “I started walking in 2014 to loose the baby weight I gained with my son,” shared Kiffin. “I find this race to be empowering and uplifting for all women of all shapes and sizes.”

Kiffin usually runs 10K races but decided to attend the Diva Run after seeing it on #BlackGirlsRun. Mara Kiffin was on hand to cheer on her daughter. “I plan to sign up for this race next year,” she expressed with a twinkle in her eye, “And I’m ganna do it too!”

Divas from ages 8 to 85 took to the streets on Sunday and by the looks on their faces enjoyed every minute. This is the second year in a row the Diva Run has been held in St Augustine Beach. Bringing visitors of all ages from throughout the USA, along with running, these Divas plan to spend some time exploring the town.
