Happy Holidays!
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!

In addition to offering finisher, overall, and age group awards after each halfathon and our marathon, we also track each athlete's finishing times and add them together to determine the Florida Halfathon Champions.

Athletes accumulate their total finishing time by completing any two of our halfathon segments, PLUS our season-ending finale at the Florida Beach Halfathon during our race season from Halloween through March. For the purposes in determining Florida Halfathon Champions, athletes can use either or both marathon segments completed during the Clearwater Marathon.

To recognize our fastest and most consistent halfathon athletes, we offer special overall and age-group rewards based on three halfathon segments. We also recognize athletes who complete all four of our halfathons (or the Clearwater Marathon instead of the Clearwater Halfathon) with a limited-edition, series finisher medal. Register here.
