Event summary

Join us for our 5th Annual Ft. De Soto 15K, 10K and 5K Race, at beautiful Fort De Soto Park, just south of St. Petersburg. Made up of recreational trails and access roads in this historic state park, the 15K, 10K and 5K courses at Ft. De Soto are fast and flat – perfect for setting a PR! Fort De Soto Park has been named “America’s Top Beach” several times over the years citing a “spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a laid-back atmosphere.”

Hi, didn’t see that it said this would be posted publicly. Could you please remove my email and cell phone # then?

Hi, my 12 year old son Alexi who turned 12 in July would like to participate in your 5k. He has never participated in a public event before. He was very encouraged by the fact that it said there were also age category trophies. Does that mean there is a 12 year old section? Or how do your age groups and trophies work? I would love for this to be an encouraging experience for him, which is why I ask. Many thanks Florian (Sarasota) Cell phone (310)459-1800 [email protected]

Hi Florian, thanks for getting in touch and I hope you are having a great week. I am so glad to hear that your son would like to take part in this event. Your son will be competing in the 10-14 year olds age group and if he comes in the top 3 he will win an award. All finishers in the Fort De Soto 5K earn the unique gold running starfish medal! :)
