1:00 PM-3:00 PM

The story of a South Beach legend 

Walk to the Fifth Street lifeguard stand on South Beach at 5:15 pm any day. You will see a bearded, long-haired shirtless man wearing black shorts, one black glove, and a headband that’s black, too. People call him the “Raven,” and he’s been standing in front of that lifeguard stand at that time for the last forty years, getting ready for his eight-mile jog up and down the beach. That’s right—Raven has run eight miles on the sands of South Beach every day since 1975, through concussions, hurricanes, food poisoning, animal attacks, hail and high water. And he’s still going.

This event will feature:

  • A reading of poetry written by the Raven himself
  • Screening of the feature documentary
  • Invitation to join the Raven on his famous 8 mile run on the beach following the film at 4:15 PM

Creators: Laura Lee Patterson Huttonbach and Mary Beth Koeth
