DATE: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2020
PLACE: FT. DE SOTO PARK, ST. PETERSBURG
We are very sad to announce the Ft. De Soto Distance Classic on October 4 is officially cancelled for this year.
After multiple discussions with the Pinellas County Parks Department over the last few weeks, we have come to the conclusion that we can’t stage this race to the high standards our athletes have come to expect from us, while also keeping everyone safe due to the restrictions posed by COVID-19.
While extremely disappointed, we believe this is the best course of action for the health and safety of our athletes, crew members, and volunteers.
We will provide another update ASAP with additional details as we are still working out options for our athletes who are currently registered.
Today’s announcement is solely to inform our athletes as quickly as possible. Stay tuned..
