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.
“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.”

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 8 oz. bottled waters.
We’re located in the beautiful Tampa Bay area, staging races in St. Petersburg, Fort DeSoto Park, and Madeira Beach to Largo.
