We are in the planning stage for our packet pickup locations, dates and times for the Florida Holiday Distance Classic, with packet pickups in St. Pete and in Tampa for our local runners’ convenience. We will also have packet pickup on race morning, but we encourage you to pick up during the week to avoid long lines.
About the Holiday Distance Classic Halfathon and 10K
Get in the spirit and jingle all the way to the finish line at our Florida Holiday Halfathon & 10K. In our 20th year, this race has become a Holiday tradition as you join Santa, elves, and other runners at this festive point-to-point race and get rewarded with a beautiful Holiday-themed medal.
The flat, fast and visually varied course starts in Madeira Beach and ends at Largo’sTaylor 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˚,
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.

The only year-long runners’ Challenge in Tampa Bay! Sorry, but due to COVID-19, we had to suspend the Challenge for this year. As with all races, we hope that we can resume our Challenge next season. Please stay safe!
