St. Petersburg, FL (Oct. 7, 2022) - St Pete Run Fest is returning on November 11-13, 2022. The City of St Petersburg’s official running event is back, and excited to build on its award winning track record.

The 3-day Good Sweat Festival is anchored by distance running events (Regenexx Half Marathon, Rollin’ Oats 10K, Outback Steakhouse 5K, 4 Challenges and Kids Races) and includes the Sunshine 96.7 Music Festival featuring local musical acts, Green Bench craft beer, 3 Daughters, Mermosa wines, Celsius, Outback Steakhouse and the Rollin’ Oats Market Wellness Village. This year’s event will also include the Jenkins Law Tailgate Zone hosting teams of 20 or more from organizations across Tampa Bay.

The St Pete Running Company Health and Fitness Expo is located in the plaza between the Mahaffey Theater and Salvador Dali museum and includes 75+ vendors, artisans and entertainers. The festival will draw over 10,000 runners and their families to downtown St. Pete, providing an economic boost for local businesses.

St Pete Run Fest is proud to partner with the St. Petersburg Free Clinic again to raise funds for their Food Bank, which feeds an average of 60,000 hungry community members a month. When you participate in any of the races, Run Fest will donate money for each mile you run to the Free Clinic aiming to provide 5,000 meals to those in need (Miles for Meals). You can also make an additional donation online when you register for any St Pete Run Fest event or create your own fundraising page to raise even more.

The PeliKids One Miler on Saturday, November 12, is the culmination of an ongoing running/walking Marathon Challenge for kids in Kindergarten through 8th grade, aimed at promoting an active lifestyle and healthy habits. PeliKids will log a total of 25.2 miles at home or at school, prior to completing the final mile of this 26.2 Marathon Challenge in front of cheering fans at the St. Pete Run Fest Finish Line! Our motto is “I CAN DO 26.2!” All net proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society- Gold Together program.

Sustainable St Pete is a very important part of the race and the event is “Ocean Friendly” and will not allow single use plastics or Styrofoams. In 2022 the event is partnering with St Pete Youth Farm to compost cups and waste from the event and implementing a Tee for Trees fundraising program to plant trees in St Pete in honor of sustainability pioneer Ben Siwinski.
