Race options include:

10K Competitive:

The 10K competitive race will wind through the beautiful, waterfront streets of downtown St. Petersburg and Snell Isle. This event is timed and all participants will receive a runner goodie bag, timing chip & Race bib.

5K Competitive:

The 5K competitive race will follow the same beautiful course as the 10K, just half the distance. This event is timed and all participants will receive a runner goodie bag, timing chip & Race bib.

General Registration:

You don’t have to run to have a good time at the Race! This registration is for those who want to do the non‐competitive 5K Run/Walk, the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk or be Proud in the Crowd. All participants will receive a Race packet with a Race shirt & Race bib.

Students for the Cure:

A special student rate for students in middle school through college. You will need to enter your school name and student ID during registration. All Students for the Cure registrants will receive a race packet with a Race shirt & Race bib. This is a non‐competitive, non‐chip‐timed entry. To participate in one of the competitive categories, you must register in that category. There are no student rates for the competitive Race categories.

Kids for the Cure:

No matter the age, we need everyone’s help in the Fight Against Breast Cancer!! Kids for the Cure is available for all kids 10 years of age & under. We will have kids dashes and kids’ activities available on Race Day. Kids for the Cure Race packets will include a Race shirt & Race bib.


Can’t make it to the Race? You can Race in spirit instead! Virtual Race participants will be mailed a commemorative Race shirt.



Breast cancer has affected my family – both my Aunt Darlene and my grandmother on my mom’s side. Thanks to treatment immediately after diagnosis, she is coming up on 11 years cancer-free. We are so very thankful for this. She was also tested to see if her type of cancer was genetic and it was not.




Although I am only 43, I have already had three mammograms done because of our family history as well as in preparation for fertility treatments we did back in 2009.  Last year, I ran the Race for the Cure to celebrate my Aunt Darlene who is so very dear to me.




My friend and fellow Tampa Bay Blogger, Steph, is continuing her mission for breast cancer awareness in memory of her mom who passed away in 2012 from breast cancer. She created #TeamJudy to continue her memory and legacy. If you register for this years Race for the Cure, please consider joining #TeamJudy when you register. 

If you’d like more information on the event or would like to register, visit Komen Florida Suncoast Race for the Cure today.

I would love to join this event and run beautiful downtown St. Petersburg at night, but it just so happens to fall on the weekend of our anniversary getaway. So, I have TWO free entries to giveaway. Two random winners will be selected on 09/28/15.

Until next time…..



4 Comments on Get ready to Glow Pink at the 2015 Race for the Cure! {Giveaway}

  1. Two girls I went to high school with died of breast cancer in their 30s. Just so sad! I think of them, and I always think of Steph’s mom.

  2. I have not been affected by Breast Cancer in my life or anyone close to me, but I love being apart of something bigger, something that makes a difference, any chance I can, I want to help, and if me running, motivates, or inspires or just helps someone, then thats why I want to do it. I want to support all the women who have been affected and continue to fight!

  3. My cousin passed away a few years ago from cancer. I now have another cousin who only has a few months left. Never thought this would hit so close to home.
