Course Maps & Info


Start to Mile 4
We start in the shadow of City Hall in Madeira Beach, and tour through five small gulfside communities with a good balance of residential, condominium and commercial areas. The course heads north on Gulf Boulevard through Redington Beach, North Redington Beach and Redington Shores into Indian Shores, where we pass mile marker #4 just before the top of Park Boulevard Bridge.

Miles 4 to 6
The course turns inland over the Park Boulevard Bridge (a 25 feet bridge over the intracoastal), staying on Park Blvd. until Old Oakhurst Road, turning south to Oakhurst Road, which provides a taste of “old Florida” – a rustic, tree canopied two lane road, east around and into Seminole Park, where our friendly volunteers at the 4th hydration station await your arrival.

Miles 7 to 12
The Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail is the longest (35 miles) “rails-to-trails” linear park in the country. It provides the perfect opportunity to really focus on your stride and get into your own rhythm, as you cruise through Seminole and Largo. It is perfectly flat, except for two overpasses (each 25 feet high). The Pinellas Trail was recently recognized as one of the ten best places in the country to roller blade, due to its extremely smooth asphalt, and its seclusion from vehicular traffic.

The course turns into scenic Taylor Park, and around an outstanding freshwater lake to the finish line.

Congratulations! Time for some well-earned R&R in our grassy park.
