We’re located in the beautiful Tampa Bay area, staging races in St. Petersburg, Fort DeSoto Park, and Madeira Beach to Largo.

“Just wanted to let you know that this was my first half marathon. It was an extremely well organized and great event. From check-in to water stations, to volunteers to finish line, etc. It was all done top-notch. It made the first time experience of 13.1 an enjoyable one for me. Plus all the “goodies” at the finish line and the area for the finish (especially for those with families like me) was a great spot for viewing and recovering! GREAT JOB!!! Thanks for making it a memorable first half.”
