Cancellation Announcement

Though Pinellas County will be re-opening its beaches on Monday, May 4, they will still be implementing the CDC’s social distancing rules for everyone’s safety. As our races require mass participation in relatively close quarters, we can not guarantee proper social distancing even though we are outdoors. We are deeply disappointed, but we agree with and support our county’s decision. Therefore, we are canceling the Shamrock Distance Classic.

Emails have been sent to all registered athletes on an ongoing basis since we first announced the Shamrock Distance Classic had been postponed. If you have not been receiving our emails, please email us at info@FLRoadRaces.com

During these uncertain times of social distancing and self-isolation, please know we miss seeing our athletes as much as you miss running with each other. We look forward to seeing you sometime soon, or, at our races in the fall.

New Virtual Race Info

RUN Solo, RUN Strong, RUN as ONE on Sunday, May 17 – or the week after! Get your green on, run your distance, and earn your bling. Light up Facebook with selfies, scenics, run reports and your finishing times. Though we can’t come together at Ft. De Soto Park for the Shamrock Distance Classic, we can come together in spirit as one running community.

– We will send out your shirt, bib, and medal right away. You should receive it by May 17, especially if you are local.

– Athletes who already received their bib and shirt and opt to switch to virtual will have only their finisher medals sent to them. Plus, you can avoid the inconvenience of returning, or purchasing, your race packet. Please see our Virtual Page for more details.

“Wow! Another awesome job by you and your support team. It’s my fourth year in a row, and the race just gets better every year. My friends and I race everywhere, but your race always sets the standard! Thanks again, and see you next year.”
– Jim Moore, Sarasota, FL
