Build a Foundation
Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.
To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.
Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.
With the popularity of the October Tampa Bay Whiskey Run, Xanadu Race Management and The City of Tampa are bringing you the February 16, 2019, Tampa Bay Tequila Run With A Shrine Fundraiser Category at Whiskey Joe's in Tampa. Again, this race is also limited to 500 participants as it is one of the ONLY races in the world where you can participate in an organized event to run or walk WITH WATER ON BOTH SIDES! We hope you enjoy this race across the Bay!
All participants in both the 5K, 10K , and Half Marathon will receive an awesome unique 2019 finisher's medal that won't disappoint as XRM is known for the best finisher's medals in the world. Participants will also receive the long sleeve technical shirt as well as an electronically timed event with top finisher awards going to the first 15 males and 15 female finishers in each distance. Of course EVERYONE takes home the awesome finisher's medal.
From local Tampa Bay health enthusiasts to people who have visited Tampa Bay from all over the world, we’ve fallen in love with this beautiful fully paved fitness trail known as The Courtney Campbell Trail. Many of us have dreamed about participating in an event with water on both sides and this Bay run is one of the most classic in the world.
All distances are bib chip timed with a start and finish line mat. The morning moves fast, we have a finite amount of registrants, and you will need to be on site in a timely manner in order to advance to your start corrals. The Half Marathon will begin at 7:30 a.m., The 10K will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5K will begin at 8:15 a.m. The parking garage will open at 6 a.m. and pre race packet pick up will be available race morning as well as the Friday night before the run from 5 pm to 7 pm at Whiskey Joe's Waterfront Grill where all the fun takes place.
All distances are an out and back course on the trail which is completely paved. Due to the narrowing areas of the trail we cannot allow baby strollers or pets. If you are a participant who requires a special device please contact race management so that we start you in the perfect wave to suit your needs.

All registrants will park in the Shrine headquarters parking garage race morning. The exact adress will be emailed to all registrants in mid February.
Our post race party will present awards to the first 15 males and first 15 male finisher's in each distance. Overall finish times will be posted later on race day at www.727CanRace.com
