The race course will begin at the Harborview Center. Runners will go over the Memorial Causeway Bridge, following suit with the IronGirl race that took place earlier this year. 5K and 10K runners will have individual turn-around points either on the causeway, or on Mandalay Ave. The race will finish near the starting line near the Harborview Center. The race course will take runners out to Clearwater Beach and back to the Harborview for a free post-race pancake breakfast.
A 1 mile kids race will take place around the Harborview Center and Coachman Park. Long-sleeved tech-shirts will be given away to the first 800 entries.
The Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic was started twenty-one years ago by Sandra Johnson, and has become one of the premier races in Tampa Bay.
