5th Annual Veteran’s Run
November 12 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am
Ben T. Davis Park
7740 W. Courtney Campbell Causeway
Tampa, FL 33607
Back by popular demand! This is one of our most favorite races, and we are thrilled to be able to make it happen!
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 (with the exception of the 5K) 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, but only the 16 mile race will run the entire length of the bridge.
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 the Stano Foundation. This foundation support our Armed Forces, Veterans, and their families through program based initiatives focused on enhancing their comfort and quality of life by providing them with a piece of home. What this organization does for our military members is truly an amazing quality-of-life enhancement. Words cannot express what it’s like to receive care packages downrange, so we want to ensure they’re able to continue providing this service.
