The 5th annual 'Rotary Runs The Beach' takes place on scenic Indian Rocks Beach March 9th, 2024 with a 5K timed/chipped race, 1-mile family fun run / walk or a virtual run this year. Running on the beach is as beautiful as ever!

A special thanks to our main sponsor The Original Crabby Bill's restaurant!  Proceeds  will benefit the Rotary Club of Indian Rocks projects that support both local and international causes within Rotary’s mission of “Service Above Self”.

The 5K race begins at 8:00am and the 1 miler begins 8:05am at the Indian Rocks Beach Access located at 1700 Gulf Blvd on Indian Rocks Beach. Our race is chipped and the course is “out and back”. This is a great event for competitors as well as beginners.

There is a nominal fee for parking on site, or park on city streets for no fee.

Early Packet Pick-up and In-person registration at “Guilty Sea” located at 301 Gulf Boulevard, Indian Rocks Beach on March 7th and 8th between 3:30 and 7:00pm.  Race Day packet pick-up and registration will be at the Beach Access, 1700 Gulf Blvd., from 7am to 7:45am.  

- Race T-shirts are not guaranteed if not registered by Feb 25th.

After-party at Guilty Sea in Indian Rocks Beach just a mile or so from the race location... what a fantastic way to reward yourself for a job well done!  A free beverage is included for all registrants.  An all-you-can-eat buffet will be available at the after party for $12.00 for registrants, family members and friends (details subject to change).

Are you a run or fitness club member? Join the Running Club Competition when you run the 5K. Individual winners (medals).  You can create your own team as well - so get your fellow runners together and create a team/club!  

Individual Running Contest is open to all age runners. Medals are for winners by age groups (10-year breakouts).    

Again, a special thanks to our main sponsor The Original Crabby Bill's!

Bring your cameras/cell phones for photo opportunities with Phinley, the Clearwater Threshers mascot!! Fun for the entire family!
