This 13.1 mile certified course highlights all that is spectacular about St. Pete!
Run through the heart of downtown St. Pete, with its many unique urban districts, taking a detour through Tropicana Field, and along the scenic waterfront through historic neighborhoods.
Your run starts on Bayshore Drive next to the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, overlooking the waters of Tampa Bay. From there head up Central Avenue, with its unique shops and restaurants, taking a run around Tropicana Field (home of the MLB Tampa Bay Rays), and through the Grand Central, Edge and Warehouse Arts districts.
Then head back to the scenic waterfront, winding through the historic Old Northeast and Snell Isle neighborhoods, before a photo finish on Bayshore Drive next to the Mahaffey Theater Plaza.
The course has 10 Hydration Stations, featuring Gatorade Endurance Formula and Gatorade Endurance Energy Gels, as well as water. There is also a Hydration Station at the start/finish area.
Each runner will receive a high quality, custom-designed shirt, bib with B-tag timing chip, St Pete inspired finisher medal, a TERVIS Tumbler & Orangetheory gym towel at the finish, two craft beers from 3 Daughters Brewing, a smoothie from Tropical Smoothie Cafe, and post-race food from Outback Steakhouse. In an effort to cut down on single-use plastic waste, runners will also receive a reuseable bag at packet pick-up. Plus, enjoy live entertainment, and the Health & Fitness Market.
