Course Map

This course will utilize the Al Lopez Park loops. Runners MUST run the large loop first, followed by the smaller loop. This completes the 5k run. 10k runners will run TWO big loops and TWO small loops (IN THAT ORDER!!!).  Challenge runners will run THREE big loops and THREE small loops.


Our timing mats are programmed to record times only after the runner completes the course in a specific order.  If the runner fails to complete the course in the following order, your time won't be recorded and there will be NOTHING we can do to help you.

  • 5k Runners: (BIG LOOP, SMALL LOOP)

Kids Run

Military Discount

For 2019, we've increased the discount for military service members and veterans from 15% to 20%. We support the U.S. Armed Forces, and we want to give back.

If you're a military service member, reservist, or a veteran of the U.S. military, you get a 20% discount on your registration. To qualify for this discount, you'll be required to show one of the following forms of identification to the volunteers at the registration tent. Without these documents, you will be banned from future NeoEndurance races.

  1. Military CAC ID (must not say "Civilian" or "Contractor")
  2. Retiree ID Card
  3. Veteran Affairs ID Card
  4. Driver's License with "V" symbol.

A DD-214 alone is not sufficient without photo identification that matches your document.  In an effort to prevent fraud and abuse of this program, while ensuring that military service members and veterans are recognized for their services, you'll be asked to show one of the above forms of ID when you pick up your bib packet. Use the promo code MILITARY20 at checkout.



Weather and Refunds

This is a rain or shine event.  We don't anticipate a drastic temperature in weather.  It is, afterall, the "Sunshine State".  However, in the unusual circumstance that this event is cancelled due to extreme weather (hurricane or heavy unrelenting downpour), there will be NO REFUND!  Instead, we will reschedule the event to the next available weekend.

If, in the unlikely event that we have to reschedule the event to another weekend and participants are unable to make the new date, they have several options which can all be done by the runner under "Race Management" in their RunSignUp profile:

  1. Defer their registration to the following year.
  2. Transfer your registration to another event in the same year (we have many events in the Tampa area!).
  3. Sell your bib to another runner for a refund (there's a $5 fee for this and the recipient must complete the registration).
  4. Gift your bib to another runner w/ NO refund.

In the event of lightning in the area, we will postpone the event by an hour, possibly longer, or until the "all-clear" is given by park and race officials.
