To paraphrase an old saying: the best time to start training for a race is six months ago. The second best time is now. St. Pete Run Fest and Rollin’ Oats are hosting the Run Fest Kickoff 5K this Saturday, September 16, to help kickstart training for November’s beloved St. Pete Run Fest.

Jointly hosted with St. Pete Running Co. and Bad Ass Lady Gang, the Run Fest Kickoff 5K is a free run beginning and ending at Rollin’ Oats (we recommend a post-run smoothie), and registration takes place on-site. In fact, the first 20 people to register on Saturday morning will receive a $25 Rollin’ Oats gift card.

What to know:

  • When: Saturday, September 16, 8 am
  • Where: Rollin’ Oats St. Pete, 2842 Dr. MLK Jr. Street North
  • How: Registration is free and takes place on-site before the 5K begins

Of course, this 5K is a precursor to the Burg’s biggest race event of the year. St. Pete Run Fest brings a full three days of running action to downtown. Races at Run Fest include the Regenexx half marathon, the Rollin’ Oats 10K, the Duke Energy 5K, and the Peli Kids Youth Run.
