St Pete Pier Run

Gather your friends and family, and kick off your 4th of July celebrations with the inaugural St Pete Pier Run!  The 4 mile run showcases the amazing St Pete Pier, which opened in 2020, as well as St Pete’s scenic waterfront.  The event includes live music for all to enjoy.   Come and run your FOUR ON THE FOURTH at the St Pete Pier!

The Course

This out and back 4 mile run course begins on the beautiful St Pete Pier, then heads south on Bayshore Drive, past Al Lang Stadium and the Dali Museum, along Dali Way, and south on First Street to USF St Pete.  From there, you’ll turn around on 8th Ave SE and head back to the Pier!  There will be one hydration station at the turnaround.
