About This Activity

With four competitive timed races from 3.1 to 26.2 miles, we have something for everyone during a winter weekend on Florida's beautiful gulf coast, and so we invite athletes of all abilities to join us at the St. Petersburg Distance Classic.

With multiple options for virtual athletes, we encourage athletes anywhere in the world to participate at their own pace on their own course to earn their finisher medal.

While the courses have not yet been finalized, all races will start near the North Shore Pool and showcase the most wonderful waterfront on Florida's west coast at sunrise.

The Marathon and Halfathon courses will also work their ways through St. Petersburg's beautiful downtown.

All courses will be scenic, accurately measured, and USATF certified, and extremely flat. As all USATF certified courses are Boston Qualifiers, our marathon may be used to secure your spot in the 2020 Boston Marathon.

ALL finishers will earn gorgeous medals featuring our unique running starfish in an appropriate St. Petersburg theme.

Athletes can expect the same level of high quality, well-organized events we have become known for over the last 20 year, along with a post-race celebration second to none.

Walkers are welcome in all our races.

The St. Petersburg Distance Classic website will be coming in the very near future.
