10K - St. Petersburg Distance Classic

St. Petersburg 10k

The St. Petersburg 10K is a beautiful course showcasing St. Petersburg’s historic residential waterfront areas in Snell Isle and around Coffee Pot Bayou.

With a start time 40 minutes before sunrise, most runners will complete the course before the sun rises high enough to present any challenges. Also, with just one incline – a small bridge onto Snell Isle, this should be a lightning-fast course for those seeking a PR.

The Course

Our St. Petersburg Distance Classic 10K starts with our halfathon and marathon at 6:30 am at North Shore Park on St. Petersburg’s beautiful downtown waterfront. The course heads north into Snell Isle to view some of our area’s finest historic homes.

The St. Petersburg Distance Classic 10K continues through Snell Isle around Coffee Pot Bayou before returning back towards North Shore Park.

Our 10K initially bypasses the turn into the finish line area and heads south along Vinoy Park towards the Vinoy Resort. The 10K athletes turn around and return back to North Shore Park to complete their race.

…in all honesty, this race was beautiful. I loved running by the water. The announcer did a fabulous job cheering everyone on as they crossed the finish line. The food and beverages provided were greatly appreciated! Thank you for making this one of my best races ever. I will definitely be running in it again next year. Scratch that. I will be running the halfathon next year! :)”
