Happy Holidays!
runnerGet in the spirit and jingle all the way to the finish line at our 14th Annual Florida Holiday Halfathon. Join Santa, elves, and other joyful runners and get rewarded with a beautiful Holiday-themed medal.

The flat, fast and visually varied course starts in Madeira Beach and ends at Taylor Park, where you can enjoy the natural beauty during our festive post-race party. You'll run through exclusive residential and commercial areas in our beach communities, along smoothly paved Pinellas Trail, and through shaded public parks.

Average weather in December: Low 52, High 72.

This race is perfectly timed for runners training for Disney, Gasparilla, Miami, Ocala or for endurance athletes seeking a final race before the holidays.

Just wanted to let you know that this was my first half marathon. It was an extremely well organized and great event. From check-in to water stations, to volunteers to finish line, etc. It was all done top-notch. It made the first time experience of 13.1 an enjoyable one for me. Plus all the "goodies" at the finish line and the area for the finish (especially for those with families like me) was a great spot for viewing and recovering!

I'm happy since I beat my last 1/2 marathon time by 3.5 minutes. Look forward to next year's race. I highly recommend this race! Very fun, scenic, and well organized. I appreciate your hard work for putting these races together. At 48, it keeps me healthy and young in spirit.

Another great race! The best volunteers, good food and a great course! Oh, and one of the most supportive RD's in the county!
