Known as the “Sunshine City”, St. Pete holds the Guinness record for most consecutive sunny days – 768 to be exact. Join in the Run Fest weekend on Saturday with a 3.1 mile run along St. Pete’s beautiful waterfront. Set a PR on this USATF certified flat and fast course, or run just for fun with your family and friends.
Your run starts on Bayshore Drive next to the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, overlooking the waters of Tampa Bay. From there head up North Shore drive, along the scenic waterfront parks, and through the historic Old Northeast neighborhood. Then head back for a photo finish on Bayshore Drive next to the Mahaffey Theater plaza.
There is one Hydration Station on the course, featuring Gatorade Endurance Formula and water. There is also a Hydration Station at the start/finish area.
Use our 5K training plan to help you get to the finish line!
Each runner will receive a high quality, custom-designed shirt, reuseable ECO-tote, and run bib with B-tag timing chip at packet pick-up.
