I am counting down the days until St. Pete Run Fest which is being held November 18th and 19th. This will be my first time attending the festival which is two full days of fun, including running events, a Health & Wellness Market, local food, music and craft beer from one of my favorite local breweries, 3 Daughters Brewing. There will be running distances for kids, beginners and seasoned runners. Are you ready to lace up your shoes and join us?
Held in the stunning downtown St. Pete, this is a must for all runners. Just imagine running around one of the world’s most gorgeous cities and ending your route with food, drinks and fun. If you have never done a 5K but have always wanted to, now is your chance. The course is a 3.1 mile run along St. Pete’s beautiful waterfront and starts on Bayshore Drive with view of the waters of Tampa Bay. From there, you will head up North Shore drive, along the scenic waterfront parks, and through the historic Old Northeast neighborhood. Lastly you will head back for a photo finish on Bayshore Drive next to the Mahaffey Theater plaza. You don’t want to miss this!
For those of you that are seasoned runners, the half marathon is calling your name. Just picture it: 13.1 miles through spectacular St. Pete! You will run through the heart of downtown St. Pete, take a detour through Tropicana Field, and then all along the scenic waterfront through historic neighborhoods. The run starts on Bayshore Drive next to the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, overlooking the beautiful waters of gorgeous Tampa Bay. From there you will head up Central Avenue, with all of its unique shops and restaurants, then take a run around the legendary Tropicana Field. Finally you will run through the Grand Central, Edge and Warehouse Arts districts.
For those of you that are crazy about running like myself, you can do both the 5K and the Half for what is known as the Dolphin Double. This will be my furthest distance yet and I am ready!
