Florida's typical running season is fall through early spring due to the warm and humid summers. The 2018-2019 running season was my best, completing:
Six (6) Half Marathons (13.1 miles)
Four (4) 10 Ks
One (1) 5 Miler
I posted some photos below.
Sarasota 10K (Suppose to be a 1/2 Marathon
This was supposed to be the first half marathon, but they had to cancel the half and let us run the 10K. So, as disappointing as it was, I made the most of it and had a great run. Beautiful day. https://www.sarasotahalfmarathon.com/
14th annual Mile for Moffitt in downtown Tampa and along Bayshore. They offer 10K, 5K, 1-Mile Run/Walk, Wheelchair Race or Kids Dash. This will be my second appearance. Very good local cause and great participation. Moving...... Visit https://give.moffitt.org/site/TR?fr_id=1070&pg=entry
Second race in the challenge. Last year's theme and medal was the Mercury Space Program, the first capsule in the space race. This years theme will be Gemini, then Apollo next year. Then you get the Challenge Medal. There will also be a run/medal with the Space Shuttle theme. They also offer a marathon. Visit http://www.spacecoastmarathon.com/
I've always wanted to sign up for this race for the past two or three years and something always get in my way. Not sure if I will do this or the St Pete Beach Classic. All the review are good and the number of runners will make it enjoyable. https://napleshalfmarathon.net/
This one is a stretch big time. The distance is one issue, and if I did register, I would have to do the full marathon. I'll make the decision by the end of November. Visit https://themiamimarathon.com
This would be my 10th or 11th appearance. Start off in downtown and run down and back up Bayshore. The post run festivities are remarkable. I have experienced very cold and very humid starts, but they have always been remarkable. Visit http://www.publix.com/gasparilla for more information.
This is taking place March 1st. This year they performed a lottery as so many try to register and there are not enough spots. 22K people signed up for 7000 spots during the first phase of the lottery. Amazing. Visit https://www.skyway10k.com/ .
This was one of the best events in 2019 and I'm sure it will be in 2020. Registered! Running the challenge (both the half and the 10K) Bring your cameras! https://www.rundisney.com/events/disneyworld/star-wars-rival-run-weekend/
Good store to purchased running apparel including shoes. Stores are scattered across the Tampa/Sarasota area. Every store has a platform to diagnosis your running pattern and provide good recommendations that fit your running style. It worked for me. Visit www.fit2run.com.
Great running club and a great resource to find Tampa area running events. I've met several members over the past year so I ended up joining. Great group for all runners. Come on out!. Visit RunTampa.com for more information
I was a member several years ago. Great group of people. I just can't participate any longer due to their proximity and my work schedule. They provide some great resources for members and a very comprehensive list of local races. Visit BRC for more information.
