Made up of recreational trails and access roads in this historic state park, the 15K and 5K courses at Ft. De Soto are fast and flat – perfect for setting a PR!
Fort De Soto Park has been named “America’s Top Beach” by TripAdvisor several times over the years citing a “spectacular combination of soft white sand, calm, clear water and a laid-back atmosphere.”
“I really appreciate the quality of events that you put on for the Bay Area . . . the courses are scenic and easy to follow, the volunteers are super supportive along the water stops, and the medals are AWESOME! I look forward to participating in your races for years to come. ” – Emily Arends, Clearwater, FL
