Plan Your Runcation!

The Clearwater Running Festival is home to America’s #1 beach and is just 22 miles from Tampa on Florida’s stunning west coast.  All of our courses in the Clearwater Running Festival take you past some of the most beautiful scenery with spectacular views of the Gulf, Inner Coastal and city. Finisher medals, post-race refreshments, overall and age group awards are just some of the take aways from this popular event.

Run the 5k on Saturday then come back to complete any distance (Half, Marathon or Ultra) on Sunday to earn the combo medal!

Four Beautiful Courses

All of our courses start and finish in Sand Key Park with spectacular views of the Clearwater Beach, Intracoastal, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Marathon

The marathon course is a double loop of the half marathon course that starts at Sand Key Park and heads through Clearwater Beach, over the Clearwater Memorial Bridge through Old Clearwater.  The course continues through the Town of Belleair with mansions on one side and views of the intracoastal on the other.   Finally, the run crosses the Belleair Causeway before heading north on Gulf Blvd to finish back in Sand Key Park.

Certification: Our USATF certification is scheduled and is coming soon.  Rest assured, this will also be a BQ!

Start Time: Sunday at 6:30am-8:00am (time trial start format)

Half-Marathon

The half marathon course is a single loop of the marathon course that starts at Sand Key Park and heads through Clearwater Beach, over the Clearwater Memorial Bridge through Old Clearwater.  The course continues through the Town of Belleair with mansions on one side and views of the intracoastal on the other.   Finally, the run crosses the Belleair Causeway before heading north on Gulf Blvd to finish back in Sand Key Park.

Start Time: Sunday at 6:30am-8:00am (time trial start format)

50k Ultra Marathon

The 50k Ultra Marathon is the same amazing course as the marathon but includes a 2.5 mile out & back section on the famed Pinellas Trail between miles 18.5 and 23.5.

Start Time: Sunday at 6:30am-8:00am (time trial start format)

5k

HEALTH & SAFETY
The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff is the most important aspect of our events. Millennium Running will continue to ensure all safety procedures at our events are followed to protect our running community.

MASK / FACE COVERING REQUIREMENTS
Face coverings will be recommended for this event during the following circumstances or when physical distancing cannot be maintained.

• Check-in / Registration Area
• Staging Zone
• Corral Zone
• Post Race Area

Disposable masks are recommended for the start. If you would like to dispose of your mask before you run, a trash can will be available at the on deck position. Reusable masks will be provided at the finish.

Face coverings are NOT REQUIRED while participating (running or walking on the course), in the Start Zone, and warming up or cooling down when physical distancing can be maintained.  (CLICK HERE for an info graphic of the zones)

START LINE PROCEDURES
This event will utilize “time trial start” format that will facilitate “social distancing” for the entirety of the event. Participants will start 2 people every 10 seconds and are seeded fastest to slowest, based off their self-submitted paces during registration.  This will allow for social and physical distancing but also allow for families and friends to start and finish over a shorter period of time.

Participants will be assigned a dedicated start time along with specific times for parking, check-in time and report to corral time.

Start times will be based on pace / seed times: Exact start times to be assigned/emailed with bib number assignment 2 days prior to the event.
