Bring the entire family and celebrate St. Patrick's day with runs and games for the kids! Register to run either a 5k (you can also walk this!), 10k, Challenge (5k+10k) or sign your kids up for a 100 meter dash at Al Lopez Park in Tampa, FL.
The kids run will be conducted on the grass near shelter 315. Ages 4-10 only, please!
The entire family can enjoy this event that includes family live music, a kids run, and children games.
Every finisher will earn a custom themed medal, bib, and a certified time. This event is chip-timed!
Virtual runners will have their bib and medal mailed to them directly after the race. Please allow 2-3 business days for your package to arrive!
***Every child registered to run in the kid's fun run will receive a custom medal***
This is a certified 5k run that utilizes both the large loop AND the small loop at Al Lopez Park.
This special event combines both the 5k and 10k earning the runner a total of THREE medals for running a total of 15 kilometers! The runner will run these back-to-back without stopping, and will begin simultaneously with the 10k runners at 8am. Because of the time restriction (3-hours), we don't encourage walkers in this event block.
We know times can be tough on your wallet. We also know you want to run and be a part of this celebratory event, which is why we've decided to permanently reinstate the LEPRECHAUN15 promo code to save you 15% off your total transaction.
Don't let your friends and family sign up without using the promo code! Share it on your social feed and let everyone know about it.
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.
*** VERY IMPORTANT!! PLEASE READ!! ***
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.
First, Second, and Third place finishers will receive an additional award in the following categories:
Placement finishers will receive a signed certificate by the Race Director with their certified time in addition to a tiered discount towards our next event. First place finishers will receive a 75% discount off any future NeoEndurance event. Second place finishers will receive a 50% discount, and third place finishers will receive a 30% discount. ALL CERTIFICATES WILL BE MAILED IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE EVENT.
The 100-meter Kids Fun Run will not have placement awards (but they all get fun medals and prizes!)
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.
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.
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:
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.
