Join us in celebrating the arrival of spring during our Florida Beach Halfathon
and 5K Race at Fort De Soto Park, located near St. Petersburg on Florida's beautiful
west coast at the mouth of Tampa Bay.
Both our courses are located entirely in Ft. De Soto Park, starting and finishing adjacent to the park's North Beach, regularly recognized as one of the nation's best beaches. These races will be run on paved access roads and recreational trails.
They are extremely flat courses, with no bridges, overpasses, or discernible inclines. They will be accurately measured and certified by the USATF.
Both races start the same, with a 5K loop that returns athletes to the start/finish area. Post-race party begins as the 5K athletes arrive, while the Halfathoners will continue on the 10-mile out-and-back tour of Ft. De Soto Park.
Finish line treats will include fresh fruit, hot pasta, cold Michelob Ultra, and live entertainment.
Citing a "spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm clear water, and a laid-back atmosphere," TripAdvisory named Ft. De Soto Park America's Top Beach, based on their Popularity Index.
This marks the third time in four years the pristine beach has received top honors on an annual "best-of" list. In 2005, Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, aka "Dr. Beach," named Ft. De Soto the nation's #1 Beach.
THE perfect place to race, party, and relax.
Come. Join us in celebrating spring!
