There will be 3 packet pickups and registrations the week prior to the race: at Fit2Run stores in Tampa & St. Petersburg and at Madeira Beach City Hall. Fit2Run is offering a 10% discount on full retail-priced items during packet pickup. There is Race morning registration and packet pickup at Madeira Beach City Hall, near the start line, though we encourage you to pick up prior to Race Day to avoid long lines.
If you are picking up for a group, it helps us tremendously if you have all the names written on a sheet of paper. This will expedite the process and keep the line moving. Extra points if they are in alphabetical order!
Though we try our best, we can not guarantee T-shirt sizes on race weekend. By picking up your packet earlier in the week, you increase your chance of getting the size you requested. The shirt size you choose when you register gives us an idea of how many Ts, per size, we should order. We place our order 3 weeks in advance of race day to allow for shipping and printing. We add a percentage to account for the runners who register after the order is placed. We hate to disappoint, but it’s tough to predict what size T-shirts the new registrants will require. Sometimes this skews our inventory. So, come early!
