3 Days of Festival Fun!

the fun begins in

St. Pete Run Fest is three days of festival fun, including running events, The Rollin’ Oats Wellness Market and Cafe, post-race food catered by Outback Steakhouse, music, and craft beer from local breweries. With distances for kids, beginners and seasoned runners, there’s plenty to entertain the entire family in the Sunshine City, St. Petersburg, Florida.  Enjoy beautiful views of Tampa Bay, while participating in this ocean-friendly event.  No single-use plastics at St. Pete Run Fest!


It is with great sadness that we announce St Pete Run Fest 2020 will not be happening in November. We had hoped the COVID-19 pandemic would improve enough to hold the event, however, Florida is still in Stage 2 of re-opening, and we feel it would not be prudent to hold such a large, in-person event this year. We know you are disappointed – we are too! We have loved bringing you Run Fest the last three years, and we have worked hard to make it a very special kind of running event. We just don’t feel that we can produce Run Fest the way we want to with so many COVID safety restrictions. It just wouldn’t be the SPRF we know and love! And, above all else, your health and safety is our top priority.

To that end, we will be offering two options for those who have already registered for the 2020 event. 1) We will automatically transfer 100% of your paid entry fee to St Pete Run Fest 2021, OR  2) you can request a full refund of your 2020 entry fee (unfortunately we cannot refund the service fee, which is retained by imAthlete). If you registered in person using a paper application with a Square credit card charge, cash, or check you will be refunded via check, should you choose the refund option. It is very important that we have your updated mailing address and email address. Please note that If you are refunded and then re-register for St Pete Run Fest 2021 you will incur service fees and any pricing differences. 

Please be patient with us as we process all of these transfers and refunds, but be assured that without a 2020 event, 100% of your entry fee money belongs to you. We hope that you will join us for St Pete Run Fest 2021!!

Please submit your refund request by September 30, 2020 11:59 PM EST by clicking HERE and filling out the form.
If you do not submit the form by the deadline, we will automatically transfer you to St Pete Run Fest 2021 on November 12-14, 2021.

REFUND TIMELINE:  After the refund request deadline (September 30, 2020), the list of participants requesting refunds will be sent to imAthlete to process the credit card refunds.  It takes imAthlete 4-6 weeks to process these refunds.  Therefore, refunds will be completed by what would have been our event weekend in mid-November.  You will receive an email once your refund has been processed.  Thank you for your patience.

Endless Summer Challenge participants: Stay tuned, we are working on an event where we will distribute shirts to all those who successfully completed the challenge.
