And since 1978, the Gasparilla Distance Classic Association has donated $3.9 million to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa, Girls Inc. of Pinellas, The Friends of Tampa Parks & Recreation and youth running related programs.
Athletes of all levels can take on the 15k, 5k, half marathon, 8k, Michelob Ultra challenges, 5k walk, 5k stroller races, and more!

Rooms To Go Volunteers will greet Half Marathon participants at one Start and Finish Aid Station and 11-Course Aid Stations set one mile apart beginning at the 1.5-mile mark of the Half Marathon. Aid Stations will supply Zephyrhills Spring Water and Gatorade Endurance Formula (Lemon-Lime Flavor), that since 1978 have been the Official Bottled Water and Official Sports Drink Hydration Partner of the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Race Weekend Events. At each Aid Station, the tables will be set-up so that participants can be offered Gatorade first and then, Zephyrhills Spring Water.
The Gasparilla Distance Classic Association is once again proud to lead the pack in offering to its runners and walkers the latest in timing technology. Race participants will be timed utilizing the ChronoTrack B-Tag Timing System, developed and designed with RFID – radio frequency identification. Much like the ChampionChip Timing System when it was introduced, the ChronoTrack B-Tag Timing System will dramatically improve overall efficiency and the participant’s experience.
