Well... who would have thought that 12 months later we would be in the same position...  Due to Covid we have had to cancel our race again,  This is very disappointing for many reasons, not to mention that Rotary Runs The Beach is such a fun event, but also it is a fundraiser for our Rotary Club of Indian Rocks Beach.

We do plan on holding the event next spring and we'll stay in touch.

At this point you have the option to defer your registration to next year, donate your registration fee to our Rotary Foundation (all monies are used to needy charities) or get a refund, so please choose the option that works best for you.

Be well, stay healthy!

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set in March/April 2022, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You want us to keep your registration fees for charitable causes. We deeply appreciate your generosity!

We understand. We hope you can join us next time. Thank you.
