The Tampa Bay Tequila Half Marathon invites you to join us at Whiskey Joe's Tampa on Saturday February 16, 2019. A different medal for each distance will make it a tough choice when you register! The half marathon runners each get the prize TEQUILA medal, 10K runners will receive the 10K Whiskey medal and 5K runners and walkers each go home with the beer keg barrel finisher's medal each photograph found at www.727CanRace.com Whatever distance you choose you will be running WITH WATER ON BOTH SIDES! We hope you enjoy this race across the Bay!
Participants will also receive a race day technical shirt as well as an electronically timed event with top finisher awards going to the first 15 males and 15 female finishers in each distance with free beer and nacho bar for everyone beginning at 9:45 a.m.
From local Tampa Bay health enthusiasts to people who have visited Tampa Bay from all over the world, we’ve fallen in love with this beautiful fully paved fitness trail known as The Courtney Campbell Trail. Many of us have dreamed about participating in an event with water on both sides and this Bay run is one of the most classic in the world.
All distances are bib chip timed with a start and finish line mat. If you choose to change your distance on race morning please take the correct colored armband for the distance you will be completing and let Matt our timer at the start finish line know that you have changed distance and he will make the adjustment in the timing system.
The morning moves fast, we have a finite amount of registrants, and you will need to be on site in a timely manner in order to advance to your start corrals. The Half Marathon will begin at 7:30 a.m and there is a 3 hour time limit to complete this distance., The 10K will begin at 8:15 a.m. and the 5K will begin at 8:25 a.m. The Shrine Headquarter parking garage on Rocky Point will open at 6 a.m.
All distances are an out and back course on the trail which is completely paved. Due to the narrowing areas of the trail we cannot allow baby strollers or pets. If you are a participant who requires a special device please contact race management so that we start you in the perfect wave to suit your needs.
