Race Cancelled!

We are sad and disappointed to announce the 19th Annual Holiday Distance Classic is CANCELLED for the first time since it was created in December 2002.

We waited until the last possible minute to make this decision while monitoring the continued spread of COVID-19.

Though we were able to stage our Halloween Halfathon with the implementation of COVID-19 Safety Protocols, due to the recent resurgence of cases nationwide, including Florida and the Tampa Bay area, we believe it would be reckless and irresponsible to bring a large group of athletes together to race.

All Registered Runners Have Been Contacted By Email

We have contacted all runners who registered for the Holiday Distance Classic about the race cancellation and their options. If you were signed up and have not received an email, first, please check your spam filter, subsequently contact us at [email protected].

Please know we are doing the absolute best we can to get through these difficult times as a race management company, while also keeping everyone’s safety in mind. Doing so will allow us to continue to serve the running community for years to come.
