Event details and schedule
Our optional Ocean Mile Swim (which if you register for the 5K you automatically eligible to participate in the swim for no additional fee) begins at 9 a.m. ocean swim and or our 5K at 10 am (2 separate events/not multi sport). Check in opens as early as 8 am in front of Pier 60 at the start/finish line. There is no pre race day check in.
For updates if you are worried about weather or race day conditions PLEASE dial my cell number 727-CAN-RACE (727-226-7223)
I do not answer my phone on race day so only text me if you need an answer immediately. If my generic message plays then the race is ON! Only in the event of changes will I change the message and give details if we have delays.
Remember to pay at the pay station for parking. They are VERY strict on the beach about parking.
If you are swimming you MUST bring a swim cap and a bright color is preferred. Please pick up the assigned colored wristband at race check in if you are doing the full ocean mile swim as they are the only category of swimmers who are eligible for the top10 awards. Swim buoys are set so that you can exit the water at the quarter mile and half mile for those of you who are training for multi sport season. You may still come through the finish line but those wearing the full mile wristband will be the only ones who are timed and scored.
If you are NOT doing the 5K at 10 am (same location) be sure to ask for your finisher's medal after the swim. We typically only pull out the medals when the 5K starts as the majority of swimmers opt to do the run.
Finisher’s times for the 5K beginning at 10 a.m. are electronically scored SO YOU MUST wear your bib number on the front of what you are running in and it must be visible. If we don't see your bib we will assume you do not want your time posted online.
Times are posted online later in the afternoon or evening on race day at www.727CanRace.com so you can see how you did against your peers on race day. We very purposely do NOT post times race day as awards are only presented at the post race party to the top 25 5K males and top 25 5K females, as well as top 10 ocean mile swimmers.
If you are handed a top finisher card (or a poker chip which we use if it's wet out) please bring it with you to Hooters as awards will begin at 11:15 a.m. on the 3rd story "Lookout Deck" of Clearwater Beach Hooters directly across the street from Pier 60. Again, allow yourself enough time on your pay station pass to stay and have fun with us until noon!
We will see you race day!
