Green mean “GO!” at the Shamrock Distance Classic Halfathon, 10K & 5K. This may this be your lucky PR race due to the fast and flat courses at historic Fort De Soto Park. Shamrocks, green beer, and live music at the awards ceremony make this a fun, yet challenging, Shamrock run.

To be determined. Stay tuned for details.

About the Shamrock Distance Classic Halfathon, 10k & 5k

With a distance for every level of runner and walker, the Shamrock Distance Classic offers a fun, yet competitive race as we wind down our race season before the heat of Florida summers.

An early morning start, coinciding with a spectacular sunrise, gets you running while it’s still cool and breezy. Though you are never running on the sand, you can see Fort De Soto’s award-winning beach from various points along the course.

Depending on which distance you run, you’ll get to experience the natural beauty of the park – a gorgeous view of the Sunshine Skyway from East Beach, the remains of the historic fort which dates back to 1898, and a shady nature trail through Arrowhead Park.

Parking is plenty and pre-paid to avoid a bottle-neck at the entrance. There are plenty of aid stations on the course with water and Gatorade.

“The race was very well executed! I felt safe. The water stops had bottled water, hand sanitizer was out and you weren’t allowed to get your medals, T and food unless you had your mask on. I would 100% do it again.”
– Genna @Risforrunning

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! I think you and the volunteers did a great job hosting the race on Saturday.  The safety measures that were put in place were very well thought out.”
– Cheryl Costello
