Tip Of The Day

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.

The St. Pete Heroes 2020 5K 10K and 1 Mile Honoring All Law Enforcement And Fire Rescue

Friends join us the evening of Friday, March 20, 2020, in St. Petersburg At Demens Landing Park in the amazing downtown St. Petersburg at Bayshore Drive and 2nd Avenue S. St. Petersburg, Florida 33701.

For almost a decade this has been St. Petersburg's signature event to showcase Law Enforcement and Fire Rescue in a 5K, 10K, or 1 mile distance run celebration on Friday evening. You'll want to enjoy a great night in St. Petersburg's downtown district after the race but the celebration gets started HERE!

The 5K and 10K both begin at 6:30 pm (so pick your favorite distance). The 1 mile will begin just minutes after 5K and 10K runners are released. The course moves along a fully paved route along Bayshore Drive toward the famous Vinoy Hotel and back to our start at Demens Landing. Both distances are electronically timed and EVERYONE will get the amazing American Flag finisher's medal. To limit a more competitive audience we do not offer age group awards but we will give an award to the first 25 males and 25 females to cross the finish line in both distances.   The one mile run is not scored or timed but all participants in ANY of the 3 distances will take home an event shirt and one finisher's medal!  What a great way to show your love and appreciation for those who serve our community and our country in law enforcement and fire rescue.
