Grab a friend or family member and run the Half-Marathon as a two-person relay team! Leg One of the relay is ~7.5 miles and Leg Two is ~5.6 miles. The Leg One runner will meet the Leg Two runner near the finish line and finish together. Each relay team member registers separately and pays their half of the relay team registration. The first person to register creates the team name and a private code that will allow the second runner to join the team. **PLEASE NOTE: The Half Marathon Relay does not count towards the 3-PETE Challenge**
PLEASE NOTE: There is a service fee charged by Race Roster for online registration. There is no mail-in option, but you can register with cash/check at our expo booth at various events. Due to the fact that there are many services and supplies which we have to order/pay for ahead of time, there are NO REFUNDS of entry fees or service fees, no exceptions. However, you may DEFER your entry by October 31, 2024, and receive a deferral code, worth 75% of your entry fee, for use towards the 2025 St. Pete Run Fest, by emailing email@example.com. The deferral code will be emailed to you when 2025 registration opens, and it expires by the 2025 event, so make sure you re-register for 2025 using your deferral code. You can also TRANSFER your entry to someone else, via Race Roster, by October 31, 2024. Please note there is a $10 transfer fee.
