Hot run! Nice swag: tank top, beach towel (a good one) and a yeti-like to-go cup. Food could have been better. And more then just one beer for the runners. MORE

My favorite race of the year! So weather forecast was 100% rain at about 70-ish degrees so pretty humid for december for sure. The RD made the announcement via email and Facebook the night before that the start time was moved up 30minutes to get ahead of the storm. Good call! Those that did not make it in within 2hrs 45mins definitely got the brunt of the storm but all made it across the finish line safe & sound. We but happy. it may have rained ever single moment of the race but it was still a super fun time and we still had just the best after party ever! the pasta was hot & the beer was cold! and get this: The race director and his wife even handed out homemade banana choco-chip muffins! now tell me what RD does that?!?

al lopez park. nice, very flat course. decent goodie bags, nice shirts, pretty medals. not too crowded however parents that let your kids run it, please school them on the “rules” of races. Stay to the right if walking; do not come to a complete stop in the middle of the course. move to the right side and hold up hand to signal stopping so no one runs into them; and no zig-zagging; no spitting!

Great bridge to run! in 2017 Outback was a sponsor and the food and race bag swag were awesome. This year, it was Humana. Race bag swag was meh at best and the food was muffins, bananas, orange slices and pastries. Disappointment was observed. Race towel again but size & quality was less than 2017’s towel. Still beats the ugly pinks shirts that never fit.

long incline but not as steep as you would think. plenty of buses. ran on time. only complaint are the too small race shirts (rec’d email they are working to get that issue fixed) and just bananas and chips at finish. HOWEVER, the howitzer in place of a start gun was awesome! very cool to run that bridge. really hope they do it again next year.

Waterfront scenery and pretty old (and new) architecturally stunning homes. i’ve ran every distance in this race over the last 5 years and the challenge is the most fun, the half is the most challenging. But the free beer and awesome after party is the best! Great group of peeps running the show too!

updated my review after Millenium Running screwed the pooch on the 2018 Clearwater Classic. This was NOT Chris Lauber’s doing. If anything went wrong at this year’s race, it was absolutely not his fault. Mr. Mortimer of Millenium Racing is one of the worst race directors i’ve come across. Not caring about runners, only HIS team and THEIR finish times.

medals said new year resolution run, not new year new me. and there was confusion at the start with calling bib numbers to start in waves. no one could hear what was being said. and no food at the finish. a few bananas but nothing else. not even water. no age groups in the race results.

LOVE this being a one way race. So fun to run up Gulf Blvd over the bridge and through Seminole. and so sad it was Race Director Chris Lauber’s final official race as director. Such a class act! Fantastic medals. LOVE my starfish! great t-shirts and ultra cold Mich Ultra at the finish. and really good fresh hot pasta with a veggie option too. p.s. new race director: DON’T CHANGE A THING!

This did not suck like i though it would. Nice swag. Pretty cool to run through tropicana field. Course was not accurately measured as my mapmyrun app came in at 13.47 miles. compared with lots of others, everyone had over 13.4 miles on theirs. the after party set up was nice and thank you for having a cider selection. could have used cold water at the finish and not a line of people waiting on smoothies. that kind of got in the way. need more races in pinellas county. and love my race t-shirt. already registered for 2018.

medal was much smaller than last year. and small medals for 5 & 10k runners. nice happy with that. and what happened to the shirts? not only ugly but what kind of material is that? cheap polyester? ran this since 2013 & this year was not the best. confusion on the awards too. music so loud you couldn’t hear anything. no stage either.

No starting line. Asked a volunteer in a yellow shirt and was quite rudely told “i don’t know”. Asked 2 more before finally finding it thanks to another runner. The volunteers were pretty rude. No announcement for the start or the National Anthem. The course was fine, same as every race out there however the photographers on the course were just standing there NOT taking pics. After race party was meh at best. The chocolate milk tasted funny so it was thrown away. Saw several cases sitting in the sun so no wonder.

yes it is a flat straight course but its a great way to just run & get your best PR on a 5k! please corral your kids though. too many young boys running willy-nilly and sideways all over the course, you almost run in to them. the after party food is the BEST! shrimp & grits from Ulele. YUM!
Just finished the 2018 race. LOVED IT! Nice change of course put us running past the private jets and Amazon & UPS planes. Pretty nice. Again, BEST after-race food! lots of snacks & bananas were taken home as well.

so much whining from the runner this year! boo-hoo, wanted a t-shirt but got a giant beach towel instead. ya can’t please everyone and in a race full of women, you’re never gonna please them all. granted the shirts & tanks from the last few years have been just awful in color and sizing, the towel was a nice change. keep it up. the photogs were terrible. not a single pic of me or my friends. work on better shirts or towels or option to choose.
