Tip Of The Day

Set a Date

No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.

Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.

2019 STARKEY WILDERNESS STOMP HALF MARATHON, 10K & 5K

We are very excited to bring you our third annual Starkey Wilderness Stomp Half Marathon, 10k & 5k on Saturday, March 9, 2019.

 

Starkey Wilderness Park is an amazing Pasco County resource that is easily accessible to the greater Tampa Bay area via the Suncoast Parkway, I-75 and SR54--making it convenient for all to come and run with us in the woods.

The scenic hiking trails in Starkey feature some beautiful pine flatwoods, oak hammocks and wetland areas along the way. Best of all, the trails are wide and mostly non-technical--great for trail running beginners and for experienced off-road runners who want to go fast!
