THE COURSE The half marathon and 10K course is accurately measured and USATF certified.
The Halfathon starts in Madeira Beach, heads north on Gulf Boulevard through exclusive residential and commercial communities to Indian Shores, before heading inland to Seminole, north along the smoothly paved Pinellas Trail into shaded and scenic Taylor Park, to the lakefront finish line.
The 10K starts on the Pinellas Trail near Seminole City Park and follows the last 6.2 miles of our popular Holiday Halfathon, heading north on the Pinellas Trail, into and around Taylor Park on the nature trail, onto the access road, to the gorgeous lakeside finish line. BEFORE the race, from 6:15 – 7:00 a.m., we will offer multiple shuttle buses from Taylor Park to the start line
Taylor Park is the perfect place to relax, recover, listen to live music, eat our homemade hot food, and enjoy some ice-cold beverages.

• For the 10K, BEFORE the race, from 6:15 – 7:00 a.m., we will offer multiple shuttle buses from Taylor Park to the start line near Seminole City Park (on the Pinellas Trail).
About The Race
We invite you to join the 18th Annual Florida Holiday Halfathon & 10K, our point-to-point course, which is fast, flat, scenic and aesthetically varied: just one small bridge (Park Boulevard Bridge, four miles into the course) and two overpasses, with the rest of the course 10 – 25 feet above sea level.
- Pinellas County’s oldest half marathon created in 2002
- Pinellas County’s only point-to-point half marathon
NEW! We’ve added the 10K to our Holiday Halfathon. The 10K allows athletes not up for the half marathon distance an opportunity to participate in one of Pinellas County’s most popular Holiday races and earn the gorgeous Holiday finisher medal.
“Wow! Another awesome job by you and your support team. It’s my fourth year in a row, and the race just gets better every year. My friends and I race everywhere, but your race always sets the standard! Thanks again, and see you next year.”
