Get ready to run, St. Pete! For fun, that is. St. Pete Run Fest is a 3-day celebration of keeping fit and active in the Sunshine City. With multiple races to choose from, that range from the lighter 5K to a Half Marathon, there’s a course for every experience level. The event is ocean-friendly too. That means no single-use plastics will be used at St. Pete Run Fest.

Participants are all running for a wonderful cause. St. Pete Run Fest has partnered with the St. Petersburg Free Clinic to raise funds for their Food Bank, which feeds an average of 60,000 hungry community members a month.

Raising funds with each mile you run

When you participate in the St Pete Half Marathon, 10K, or Sunshine City 5K, St. Pete Run Fest will donate 20 cents for each mile you run to the St Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank.  You can also make an additional donation online when you register for any St Pete Run Fest event, or create your own fundraising page to raise even more.

You’ll need to stay nourished before and after the races. Participants can enjoy the Rollin’ Oats Wellness Market and Cafe, post-race food catered by Outback Steakhouse, music, and craft beer from 3 Daughters Brewing.

30 DAYS LEFT until the St Pete Run Fest! To share the excitement, check out the official Rollin' Oats St. Pete Tropical…
