wow! this was great! had a great time with friends and family. my first 5k
It was awesome, colorful and cool running!! I really enjoyed and it gave energy for the next race. This is my 2nd 5k here in Tampa.
My friend Lisa Benjamin, Tampa Gasparilla results are not posted,
her bib was not bent and placed correctly,
she ran both 15K and 5K,
She's very upset!
I ran this for the first time and I have to say... WELL ORGANIZED! Can't wait for next year.
The weather was spectacular! A great weekend with friends! The event was so well organized, I can't wait for next years races!
Was a well run race. First time to run this one. Weather was warm and last 2/3 of race has little or no shade. Might not be practical but if you could reverse course it would reduce congestion at the first turn and allow shade towards the end of the race.
What an awesome race!! This was my first 15K and I loved it. It was well organized and fun. Plenty of helpful volunteers and the pace teams were a huge help for me. My 10 minute pace guy was right on track. I look forward to next year's race.

My 5th Year at Gasparilla, 3rd Half Marathon, the organisation is always Second to None.
Gasparilla was a great race like alway - beautiful weather and organized great!. However, the start of the half marathon needs to be redone. Having to loop around the median in the first quarter mile was down right dangerous. It was like herding cattle up that bridge.
I ran the 15k in 2010 and 1/2 marathon in 2011 (my first!). Well organized, wonderful support members, plenty of stations for water/gatorade, etc. Thanks!! Looking forward to next year's race!
I'm a back of the pack runner and it was superbly organized. Enjoyed the on course entertainment, too! Expo was great and packet pick up was a breeze. My only suggestion for next year is to place speakers in the rear of the line up so we can hear what is being said at the start line. Have done this run many times....it just keeps getting better!
Great race. Great organization. It was my first 15K, and it was a good experience. Hope to be back next year. Keep up the good work!!!!
I loved it! It was sunny this year and the route was amazing. The thing that i liked the most is that this year they did the course entirely on Bayshore, which was so much more nice than running through the city streets like last year.
while the event is organized it is very crowded, over 11,000 runners! it was a big success though, will definetly do it again!!
