Registration & Packet Pickup
We are working on packet pickup locations in St. Petersburg and Tampa during the week prior to the race to make it convenient for local runners.
There will also be packet pickup and registration at the race site, North Shore Park in St. Petersburg on Saturday 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.,and on race morning from 5:00 – 6:15 a.m.
We strongly encourage you to pick up prior to race day to avoid long lines.
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 3 weeks in advance of race day to allow for shipping and printing. We add a percentage to account for the runners who register after the order is placed. 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!
We’re located in the beautiful Tampa Bay area, with races in St. Petersburg, Fort DeSoto Park, and Madeira Beach to Largo.
