Course Highlights

  • The Marathon, Halfathon, and 10K all start at North Shore park at 6:30 am, 41 minutes prior to sunrise.
  • The 5K Race / Walk starts at 7:00 am, 12 minutes before sunrise.
  • There is an mandatory early start for any athlete expecting to exceed a 14-minute pace in the marathon, halfathon, or 10K
  • All courses tour through an exclusive waterfront neighborhood, with wonderful water views. All courses are very flat with very few inclines of consequence.
  • Our halfathon and marathon courses also run through our downtown waterfront, our booming downtown, and Central Avenue featuring an eclectic mix of unique local stores.
  • The Pinellas Trail is a featured portion for both the halfathon and marathon, with both courses running next to Tropicana Field and immediately adjacent to 1st Avenue South.
  • For marathon runners, 13.1 miles will be run on the Pinellas Trail, a Rails-to-Trails, Hall of Fame, linear park stretching from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs. Runners will run to a turnaround point near Tyrone Mall before heading back towards the waterfront
  • Each marathoner will run past every other marathon participant, whether heading west or east on the return trip.
  • North Shore Park overlooks Tampa Bay – a beautiful setting to finish and celebrate your achievement.
