The Shipyard Brewery Half Marathon & 5K takes runners along tree-lined paved pathways that run past golf courses and residential neighborhoods here in this community just outside Tampa-St. Petersburg, for a race whose proceeds go to benefit the Childhood Obesity Foundation.
The race is run along a several miles long stretch of the Pinellas Trail, a 34-mile urban trail now used for biking, jogging and walking that once served as a railroad for the CSX rail line here in central Florida,
The half marathon starts and finishes at the Banquet Hall at 315 Orange Street in Ozona just south of Palm Harbor, where the race start and finish line has been located in previous years.
From there, the race will take runners onto the Pinellas Trail for most of the rest of the race, which featured wide paved trails that will take runners past coastal homes and golf courses, and past past local landmarks like Crystal Beach and the Sutherland Bayou, just off the waters of Saint Joseph Sound.
Note: This race was formerly known as the Blue Moon Half Marathon & 5K, but its name was changed for the 2014 race thanks to the Shipyard Brewing Company sponsorship. There will be Shipyard beer at the finish line after the race.
