runnerJoin us on our flat, fast and visually varied course, which showcases Florida's coastal living.

You will run through exclusive residential and commercial areas in our beach communities, along smoothly paved Pinellas Trail, and through shaded public parks. Average weather in December: Low 52, High 72.

This race is perfectly timed for runners training for Disney, Gasparilla, Miami, Ocala or for endurance athletes seeking a final race before the holidays.

Just wanted to let you know that this was my first half marathon. It was an extremely well organized and great event. From check-in to water stations, to volunteers to finish line, etc. It was all done top-notch. It made the first time experience of 13.1 an enjoyable one for me. Plus all the "goodies" at the finish line and the area for the finish (especially for those with families like me) was a great spot for viewing and recovering!

I'm happy since I beat my last 1/2 marathon time by 3.5 minutes. Look forward to next year's race. I highly recommend this race! Very fun, scenic, and well organized. I appreciate your hard work for putting these races together. At 48, it keeps me healthy and young in spirit.

Another great race! The best volunteers, good food and a great course! Oh, and one of the most supportive RD's in the county!

Holiday Half Medal

This running season, challenge yourself and register for all four half marathons. Measure your progress from October through March, set some PRs, and take home a well-deserved Challenge medal (in addition to your finisher's medals).

With both our first and last race at Ft. De Soto Park, you'll likely see how your running has improved by the end of the season. Our races are staged 6-8 weeks apart, giving you plenty of recovery and training time between each race.

We track each athlete's best three (out of four*) finishing times and add them together to determine the Florida Halfathon Series Champion for overall and age group. You may be rewarded with a trophy at the closing ceremony!

You'll save money, too! By signing up for all 4 halfathons at once, you'll save some bucks!
