    This is one of the best races I ever went to (I've been in thousands).  It is extremely well managed, the course was flat, scenic and well patroled.  There were 4-deep age-group awards, plus a lot of random prizes.  Best of all was the post-race spread which included ample quantities of fruit, bagels, sandwiches, pizza, and beer! Thumbs up and 5 stars!

    By far one of the most well organized races in the Tampa area.  From the sign up to the final door prize, this one is top notch.  The race itself is on a flat course through a beautiful neighborhood, quite easy for many to get personal records.  Police support is strong so no worries about having to dodge oncoming vehicles.  Plenty of food to eat after the run including several types of fruit, bagels, pastries,...even pizza.  Lots of water and gatorade to keep your tank full. Always a good race and will look forward to the next year's run.

    I agree with everything said here!  It was a great community race - offered more than most races but had a really nice small community feel.

    It was a beautiful morning, beautiful scenic route and well organized. My only disappointment was that I needed water at the finish of the race and I couldn't find it...usually expect it to be a little closer to the finish line.  Saw a lot of people with bottles but apparently those ran out fairly early. Maybe bottled water, or any water, near the finish line next year???? Otherwise great!

    The race was so nice. There was plenty of foods to eat after the race.  ( No junk foods) The massage was a bonus. The raffle tickets was  great!  Most of all,  the awards were awesome! The plaques  were beautiful and decorative.  I like the post race feast and the awards.  I am sure  runners feel their efforts of hard working were paid off and recognized (for those who were competitive runners).  Thank you to all the sponsors, the volunteers, the race director who made everything is perfect for the race. Only 1 tiny suggestion, please have someone to stay at the turn for 5K or there should be a sign '5K turn here" and '10 K go straight". I am a little bit confused because 10K and 5 K were running at the same route, I almost go straight instead of turn left for 5K. Overall, it was an excellent race!

    I love this race. Good organized and friendly volunteer THANK YOU ALL!

    I yust missed the Gatorade or similar on the course. Because just water, is not well for my stomach.

    Good race, Good course and well organized. All volunteers were great.

     

    Mo only complaint, I don't understand why almost a full week after the race the results are not posted... What's the point of chip timing if the results are not going to be shared?

    I agree with you Pete. It was a good race, but results are nowhere to be found. Last time they posted results accordingly to active.com  was 2007...a bit dissapointing!

    Great race!  This is a very well organized event with a beautiful course.  It's close to home for me which is always a plus (N. Pinellas races aren't the norm), the venue is small but still chip timed and it's a very family friendly event.  I highly recommend this race!  Still looking for the race results though...
