The City of St. Petersburg awarded EndorFun Sports LLC to produce an incredible, annual Half Marathon running event the weekend of November 18-19, just before Thanksgiving 2017. Named St. Pete Run Fest, it will be a two-day festival featuring the St. Pete Half Marathon, Sunshine City 5K, Kids Run, and Health & Fitness Market, which includes live music, local craft beer and food, artisans, and entertainers. The festival will draw thousands of runners and their families to downtown St. Pete, providing a significant economic boost for local businesses and charities.
The St. Pete Half Marathon will highlight all that is spectacular about St. Pete. The course begins on the waterfront next to the world-famous Salvador Dali Museum, then it heads up Central Ave, past Tropicana Field (home of the Tampa Bay Rays), and through the Grand Central, Edge and Warehouse Arts districts ending at 3 Daughters Brewing.
The Sunshine City 5K will feature St. Petersburg’s beautiful waterfront, and will be a fundraiser for the St. Petersburg Free Clinic (SPFC) Food Pantry. As part of their Miles for Meals program, Endorfun Sports LLC will donate $1 per mile run (up to $3 per runner) to the SPFC Food Pantry for all 5K participants. In partnership with the Healthy St. Pete initiative, the 5K will also be a vehicle to encourage the health and fitness of St. Pete residents.
