Back by popular demand! This is one of our most favorite races, and we are thrilled to be able to make it happen after so long!
Let's honor America's veterans with an event focused on supporting them! This event will have both a "fun run" aspect to it as well as competition as the event will have a certified time for all distances! The path is the paved Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail on the southern side of the bridge. There is a relatively high (in Florida terms) peak that each distance will cover along the route that allows for a picturesque view of Tampa Bay. It is truly one of Tampa's most beautiful places to run or walk.
There will be a 5K and a 10K option for this race, but a limited number of spots will be available due to the demand of the half marathon. We will also have the 16-mile option which runs the full length of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, out and back style. To be clear, each of the distances will be an out-and-back run.
We will have plenty of aid stations along the course with water and an electrolyte drink, and we will also have a couple choices for food-type fuel for half marathon and 16 mile runners. We will ensure sanitary conditions for all aid stations, but feel free to ask questions about specifics if you choose.
Proceeds from this race will go to a non-profit organization which supports Veterans and their families. More information coming soon.
Prepare yourself to run along the Courtney Campbell Trail located on the southern side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway. You will start out at one of the shelters and run alongside the water taking in the magnificent views of Tampa Bay. Let the smell of the Bay engulf your senses and open your airways as you soak in the early morning sun. This will truly be one of the most beautiful races in which you have ever entered.
The Stano Foundation is an all volunteer based IRS approved 501c3. Quarterly, they send care packages to our actively deployed. Each care package contains between 40 and 50 items. They also partner with the West Tampa American Legion Auxiliary Unit 248 to assist local Veterans transitioning out of homelessness. Although they do not find them housing, they assist with food, hygiene and starter items for their new home. They also hold quarterly socials for our Veterans which help them foster friendships.
It is understood that some people like to know exactly what their donations are go to. Therefore, if financial donations are not exactly what you want to provide, The Stano Foundation has an Amazon wish list from which items specifically for the troops downrange can be purchased. You can find that list here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/17RUMFKVYIEAY?ref_=wl_share
ALL finishers will earn a finisher's medal and a moisture wicking shirt! Pictures of the shirts and other swag will be available in the coming weeks!!
