About This Activity

We invite you to join the 14th Annual Florida Holiday Halfathon, our point-to-point course, which is fast, flat, scenic and aesthetically varied: just one small bridge (Park Boulevard Bridge, four miles into the course) and two overpasses, with the rest of the course 10 - 25 feet above sea level.

The course is accurately measured and USATF certified, starting in Madeira Beach, heading north on Gulf Boulevard through exclusive residential and commercial communities to Indian Shores, before heading inland to Seminole, north along the smoothly paved Pinellas Trail into shaded and scenic Taylor Park, to the lakefront finish line, the perfect place to relax, recover, listen to live music, eat our homemade hot food, and enjoy some ice-cold beverages.

Afterwards, shuttle buses are available to return you to your vehicles near the start line.

All finishers earn unique, running starfish gold medals. Awards for M/F Open, Masters (40+) and Grand Masters (50+), three deep; age group awards offered three deep in 5 year increments.

Seven aid stations await you with enthusiastic volunteers, water and Gatorade, and fresh Florida oranges starting at the midpoint.

Florida's weather in December can't be beat: average low is 52, average high is 72, perfect for running and an early-winter vacation on our award-winning beaches!

This is a great race for runners training for marathons at Disney, Clearwater, Miami, and Ocala, and for endurance athletes seeking a final race before the holidays.

Walkers are welcome. We offer an early start at 7:05 am and course support based on a 3:30 pace. This allows you to arrive earlier to our finish line celebration in Taylor Park, while also reducing the duration of road closing and volunteer commitments.
