Runners, on your mark!!

The 25th annual Say No To Drugs Holiday Classic 5K/10K & 1mile race will be on Saturday, December 21ST, at 8am, starting in beautiful Coachman Park. Runners in the 5K and 10K will run a scenic out-and-back course over the Memorial Causeway bridge to Clearwater Beach.

Back by popular demand are the pre-race packet pick-up locations throughout Tampa Bay, during the week prior to the race!

After the race, under the big-tent in Coachman Park, runners and their families get to enjoy a fabulous, from-scratch pancake breakfast, while we give out the colorful plaques for the top runners in their age groups, and while we give out an abundance of raffle prizes! And the best part of it is… the breakfast is free – - and so are the raffle tickets (one per person though).

Go ahead and get yourself and your family registered now! You won’t regret it! Please stay tuned to this website and to our email blasts for more information as the race gets closer.
