X-Country Marathon, 30K, Half-Marathon & 5K routes

The Half-Marathon and the Marathon are run on the same course. The Marathon swings past the registration/start area and does another loop.

There will be aid stations along the course stocked with Gatorade, water, bananas and other marathoning needs. Please note, however, The Marathon course (and 1/2 marathon) will only be monitored for 6 1/2 hours. Only attempt the full Marathon if you think you can complete the race in that time.

Tampa Races

The X-Country is unlike any other run in Florida. It features rolling hills with sweeping views. You will feel like you have been transported to Kentucky on this course. The X-Country race takes place on wide grassy/dirt paths that are easy to run and easy on your body. Held at Alafia River State Park, these trails are spectacular, and we think you will love the course. So whether you pick the 5K, the 1/2 or the full Marathon, come race with us!

What’s Included
  • Tech T shirts guaranteed for pre registered runners
  • Awards! Top 20 Male and Top 20 Female in 5K will receive a medal and ALL finishers in the 1/2 Marathon, 30K, and Marathon will receive a Ceramic medal!
  • Post-Race Party: Lots of food, music and fun. Come race with us!

Pick up T-shirts and race packets on race day.

We need lots of volunteers for this race. Contact [email protected] early and you can bring a partner and race for free. We have a volunteer/run free program at TampaRaces.com. You can save a free race comp for yourself at one of our other comparable races, or a friend can run this race for free. We put the volunteer to work at one of the water stops out on the course. It's actually quite a bit of fun and the runners really appreciate it. This is a double-loop marathon course, and the volunteer will see everyone 2-4 times at the water stops.

Once you commit, we really count on the volunteer to staff the water stop. I need everyone there at the beginning of registration (6:30 a.m.) to help us get through that first. Please come up together (racer/volunteers) to the registration desk and ask for Ricky so I can get you through registration and get started. The park opens at 6:30 a.m. and there will be a line at the gate. The volunteer will be stationed with someone else and we shuttle them out to water stops as the race starts, and back near the end. We have essential supplies at the stops (water, t.p., sunscreen, etc.). It would be great if you had a cell phone and a chair is nice until the runners start coming.
