"12th Annual Florida Halloween Distance Classic"


Join us for a really good time at the 12th annual Halloween Distance Classic, with a halfathon, 10K and 5K, and scheduled for Saturday, October 31, 2020, on our nation's favorite beach: Fort De Soto Park, south of St. Petersburg. Costumes are encouraged, but not compulsory! Fort De Soto Park has been named "America's Top Beach" by TripAdvisory several times over the years. Citing a "spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a relaxed atmosphere," the popular online travel network placed the park's North Beach at the top of its annual best-of list, based on tripAdvisor's popularity index. This pristine Pinellas County beach was also named an annual best of. In 2005, Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, a.k.a. "Dr. Beach," named Fort De Soto the nation's # 1 beach. GENERAL INFO The Halfathon and 10K courses start with a loop for the first 5K before Denft tours. De Soto Park to coplete the appropriate distances. The 5K loop mentioned above includes the 5K race. All courses are located entirely in Ft. De Soto Park and walk on paved paths and access roads. You will NOT walk on the sand. These are extremely flat and fast stretches without bridges, overpasses or noticeable inclines. They are precisely measured and certified by the USATF. All finishers in each race will receive unique Halloween Starfish Medals. The prices for M / F Open, Masters (40+) and Grand Masters (50+) are three low in all three races; Age group prizes were awarded at three levels in 5-year steps. Eight aid stations for the halfathon, four for the 10K and one for the 5K await you with enthusiastic volunteers, water and gatorade and fresh Florida oranges starting from the middle of the half marathon. The weather in our region at the end of October: Average low is 62, average high is 82, maybe a bit warmer than preferred when running, but we will start the race 40 minutes before sunrise before the day starts to warm up. Of course, the mild temperatures are welcome as you relax on our nation's # 1 beach after the race. Halloween costumes are encouraged, but not required, and we offer costume prices in several categories. While we don't expect athletes in gorilla costumes to complete 21.1 miles, we hope athletes create costumes that don't adversely affect their run. This is our challenge for you.
