Hey everyone! I hope you had a great summer and are as happy as I am that fall is here. Living in Tampa, we are blessed with beautiful weather all year round. As much as I love it, the heat can be quite brutal if you are a runner. During the summer, I tend to take a hiatus from races as the heat is just too much to handle. Once October rolls around, we start to feel a tad of a break and I participate in as many races as I can. Once of my favorite running events is back again this November and I am counting down the days! Yes friends, the Getaway 5k/10k was a highlight for me last year and to this day, one of my favorite medals.
Last year I participated in the 10k and it was a day to remember. I was about 11 months into competitive running and had one half marathon under my belt. After running in probably 35 5ks, I was ready for longer distances on the weekends to keep my body in training. Everything about this race was impressive. From the running swag and the course to the food and drinks at the after party, it is one of the hottest races of the year and perfect for anyone who is thinking about trying a 5k for the first time. Whether you are a seasoned runner or just a beginner, I highly recommend this event. Here are just a few highlights:
5K participants receive a premium, heathered-orange race t-shirt. This exclusive shirt features moisture-wicking technology and offers plenty of stretch. It’s the perfect addition to your collection! All Kids Fun Run participants will receive a cool soft cotton t-shirt.
10K participants receive a 1/4 zip pull-over jacket in a new, heathered-orange color scheme as their race premium! The 1/4 zip will feature an embroidered logo, thumbholes and a back zipper pocket to hold items while you run. The sweat-wicking material will be perfect whether you’re training for your next 10k or hanging out with friends!
- 95% poly 5% spandex
- ¼ zip long-sleeve performance pullover with moisture-wicking technology
- Heathered stretch material wicks sweat to keep you cool and dry
- Thumbholes & a zippered back pocket
- Mock neck, which zips to chin to help block out the elements
- Flat seam construction
In addition, nothing compares to running in beautiful St. Petersburg. With stunning views and a nice flat course, you will feel an energy like never before.
