Packet Pickup - St. Petersburg Distance Classic

Registration & Packet Pickup

PACKET PICKUP:  for the convenience of our runners, we will have numerous packet pickups before the race. We strongly encourage you to pick up before race day to avoid long lines.
PLEASE NOTE: The stores will not have the packets until we arrive at these specific times. Please DO NOT CALL them to get your packet earlier.


RACE SITE DIRECTIONS: The start/finish line for the St. Petersburg Distance Classic is at North Shore Park; it is easily accessible at St. Petersburg’s waterfront, just north of the Vinoy Resort. If you need to Google or GPS North Shore Park, please use 901 N Shore Dr. NE, St. Petersburg, Fl 33701 as the address.

If you are picking up for a group, it helps us tremendously if you have all the names written on a sheet of paper. This will expedite the process and keep the line moving. Extra points for having them in alphabetical order!

Though we try our best, we can not guarantee T­-shirt sizes on race weekend. The shirt size you choose when you register gives us an idea of how many Ts, per size, we should order. We place our order three weeks before race day to allow for shipping and printing. We add a percentage to account for the runners who register after placing the order. We hate to disappoint, but we don’t have a crystal ball to predict what size T-shirts the new registrants will require. Sometimes this skews our inventory. So, come early!
