ST. PETE BEACH CLASSIC

January 12 - 14, 2018

Established in 2004, the Classic began as a one day event featuring 5K and 10K races plus Kids’ dashes. Fast forward to 2015, beginning the second decade of the St. Pete Beach Classic, and you will find a weekend filled with races and activities for runners, walkers, and area residents alike.

The St. Pete Beach Classic welcomes both runners and walkers and offers a race for every level of participant: 5K, 10K, Beach Fun Run, Half Marathon, Duo Competition, Individual Marathon Challenge and Kids’ Dashes. The competitive, scenic race courses guide participants through the streets of beautiful St. Pete Beach, the Sunset Capital of Florida. They are certified, flat, and fast!

A free, two-day Health and Fitness Expo is open to the public as well as participants. Everyone can also enjoy a beach bonfire and live concert on Saturday evening free of charge. All activities, including the start and finish lines for all races, are located at the Sirata Beach Resort & Conference Center, 5300 Gulf Boulevard, St. Pete Beach. Proceeds from the event will benefit charities as designated by the Board of SPB Classic LLC, a 501(c)(3) and owner of the event. Registration will open May 2016.
