About This Activity

Welcome to preferred fitness event for travelers to Clearwater Beach from around the world.  Join us 5 times a year on Clearwater Beach for the Hooters Clearwater Beach Holiday weekend 5K and Ocean Mile Swim events. We kick it off Easter weekend then move onto Memorial Day weekend and our most popular August "Hooters Summer Sizzler" (can you handle the heat!) Then we end it on December 31, 2016 at the Hooters LAST CHANCE RACE OF THE YEAR!

All registrants receive the Hooters race tshirt and a large, desirable, and substanial awesome Hooters original finisher's medal at the finish line.  Then it gets even better as we move across the street to Hooters Clearwater Beach where you each get free Hooters wings and Michelob Ultra. Awards are presented at the party to the top 10 males and females in each race!! Check out the details

Event details and schedule

Our optional Ocean Mile Swim (which if you register for the 5K you eligible to participate in the swim for no additional fee) begins at 9 a.m. ocean swim and or our 5K at 10 am Sunday, May 29, 2016. Check in opens as early as 8 am in front of Pier 60. There is no pre race day check in.


For updates if you are worried about weather or race day conditions PLEASE dial my cell number 727-CAN-RACE (727-226-7223)

I do not answer my phone on race day so only text me if you need an answer immediately.  If my generic message plays then the race is ON! Only in the event of changes will I change the message and give details if we have delays. 


Remember to pay at the pay station for parking. They are VERY strict on the beach about parking.


If you are swimming you MUST bring a swim cap and a bright color is preferred. Please pick up a yellow wristband at race check in if you are doing the full ocean mile swim as they are the only category of swimmers who are eligible for the top10 awards. Swim buoys are set so that you can exit the water at the quarter mile and half mile for those of you who are training for triathlon season.  You may still come through the finish line but those wearing a yellow wristband will be the only ones who are timed and scored.


If you are not doing the 5K at 10 am (same location) be sure to ask for your finisher's medal after the swim. We typically only pull out the medals when the 5K starts as the majority of swimmers opt to do the run.


Finisher’s times for the 5K beginning at 10 a.m. are electronically scored SO YOU MUST wear your bib number on the front of what you are running in and it must be visible. If we don't see your bib we will assume you do not want your time posted online.


Times are posted on Sunday at www.727CanRace.com so you can see how you did against your peers on race day.  We very purposely do NOT post times race day as awards are only presented at the post race party to the top 25 5K males and top 25 5K females, as well as top 10 ocean mile swimmers.


If you are handed a top finisher card (or a poker chip which we use if it's wet out) please bring it with you to Hooters as awards will begin at 11:15 a.m.


See you tomorrow! Each participant receives a tech race shirt, free beer ticket, wings sampler coupon and the awesome Hooters Easter Hottie finisher's medal with a GREAT post race party at Hooters Clearwater Beach on the 3rd story lookout deck. This race is OUR EASTER BRIGHT event so get READY TO GLOW!!! We love Hooters!
