Get ready for the Holiday binge by adding a race onto your things to do this fall. Getting fit and active is a great way to spend some family time. All ages are welcome to participate and there will be an interactive celebration village that includes live entertainment, awards, interactive kids zone, food vendors and more.

The Getaway 5K will be held at Albert Whitted Park in St. Pete. With more moderate temperatures in November, this race is a perfect way to get out and have some fun with the entire family.

Looking for the Inside Scoop? On this sponsored post, we’ve answered some of your most pressing questions for this years race event. 


What are my options?


Choose between a 5K, 10K, 1-Mile Walk or the Kids Fun Run. Make it a family outing and race, walk or skip your way through the Getaway 5K.  You can even bring a stroller with you on the run.

If your child wants to join in on the fun, sign them up for The Kids Fun Run where they can take part in a 1/2 mile for ages 8-12 or a 1/8 mile for children ages 7 and under. Children should be able to run the distance alone, though parents are permitted to run with their child.


Any discounts?


It’s hard to pass up on a good deal. Instantly get 15% off of your race feel when you visit the event website and input code blog135. If you commit early, then you can also benefit from reduced pricing. The race fee ranges from $15 to $55 depending on when you register.

Are you a current AARP member? Receive a $5 discount off their 10K, 5K or 1-Mile Walk registration and a $3 discount when registering a child for the Kids Fun Run.


Any Swag?


One of the best parts about races is all the fun merchandise that is included in your race fee. If you’re an avid runner of races then you probably have your fair share of race t-shirts.

For those new to the scene, a race t-shirt is like a badge of honor that you can wear throughout the year to remember all the fun you had.

The Getaway 5K participants will receive a blue lightweight soft cotton t-shirt and 10K participants will receive a 1/4 zip pull-over jacket that is made of sweat-wicking material.



Don’t forget the medals! These impeccably designed souvenirs double up as a magnet and a bottle opener. As you cross the finish line, you will receive your very own to take home with you.
