10K Course Time Limits
Because the Holiday 10K takes place in conjunction with and on the same course as the Holiday Halfathon, there is no time limit for the 10K.
There will be no packet pickup at Taylor Park, nor Seminole City Park, on race morning for the 10K participants. You MUST pick up your packets prior to race day, or at Madeira Beach City Hall early on race morning, or have friends pick them up prior to race day. See packet pickup schedule.
