Can I walk this race?

Yes. Runners, joggers, and walkers of all levels welcome.

Can I bring a stroller?

You can, however, this race takes place on the beach sand. That will make it difficult to push a stroller.

Yes. There is a FREE 400 meter dash for the kids. The Kids Run begins at 9:00AM.  All the kids will also receive a finisher medal.

Can I bring my dog or pet to run with me?

No. As this race takes place on the beach at Pass-a-Grille where pets are prohibited, 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.

Is there a gluten-free option for the cupcakes?

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

Will the race fee increase?

No. The cost of the race is $27 no matter what day you register.

How long can I register online?

Online registration closes March 2nd.

Does this course run along the sand?

Yes. It is a beach race that takes place on the sand.

Is this a certified course?

No. There is timing for the course, but as it takes place on the sand, it will not be a certified course.

Can I pay for the race in person instead of online?

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.

Can I pay for the race in person on race morning?

Yes, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee a hat for those race participants who pay the morning of the race.
