About The Race


Join us for a howling good time during our 8th Annual Halloween Halfathon & 5K Race at Fort De Soto Park, located near St. Petersburg on Florida’s beautiful west coast at the mouth of Tampa Bay. Both races are staged entirely in Fort De Soto Park, recognized as one of the best beaches in the nation.

Costumes encouraged! Create unique costumes in the spirit of this festive holiday, but ones that will not adversely affect your performance. Or simply wear mismatched uniforms. Or orange and black.

“Another great job with the Halloween Halfathon! Loved the course, loved the Halloween twist on the starfish medals, and of course the volunteers were great and everything was so organized! You also do a great job with communication – thanks so much!
– Eileen Boyle, Trinity
