No. As this race takes place on the beach at Pass-a-Grille where pets are prohibited, so dogs and pets will not be permitted in this race. Bystanders may have a pet on a leash so long as they do not bring the pet onto the beach.

Yes. Craft Kafe will be providing the gluten-free cupcakes for any race participants who request a gluten-free option.

Yes. You can come into St. Pete Running Company and pay for the race at the register any day prior to race day.

Can I pick up a packet for someone else?


Can I pick up my packet on race morning?

Yes, but we encourage you to pick up your packet on the two packet pick-up days prior to the race. Packets can be picked up race morning 7:00 - 7:45 AM at Hurley Park.
