About The Florida Shamrock Distance Classic

The Florida Shamrock Distance Classic Half Marathon in St. Petersburg, Florida is an amazing event with a fantastic course. This 13 mile race takes runners through some of the most beautiful parts of the city and along stunning waterfront views.

The route begins at North Straub Park and follows scenic Bayshore Drive for much of its length before winding back around to finish at the park. Along the way, runners get breathtaking views of Tampa Bay and downtown St. Petersburg’s skyline as well as a few other highlights like Vinoy Park and rest stops where they can grab refreshments or take a quick break from their run.

In terms March weather, temperatures are typically mild during this time period ranging between 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit throughout much of the day so it’s perfect for running long distances without getting too hot or cold during your race. The crowds are usually large but friendly providing plenty of cheers and encouragement all along the route while spectators line up along Bayshore Drive cheering on every runner that passes by!

What makes this half marathon so special is not only its gorgeous scenery but also its unique awards ceremony which includes live music, food vendors, drinks, prizes for top finishers plus lots more fun activities after crossing that finish line! It’s definitely an experience you won’t want to miss out on if you’re looking for something different yet equally rewarding when it comes to races in Florida. All in all, I highly recommend checking out the Florida Shamrock Distance Classic Half Marathon next year – you won’t regret it!
