Event Description

The Saturday October 10, 2020, 5th Annual Tampa Bay Whiskey Run at Whiskey Joe's Waterfront Restaurant is prespented by Xanadu Race Management in cooperation with The City of Tampa.  Again, this race is limited to 500 participants as it is one of the ONLY races in the world where you can participate in an organized event to run or walk WITH WATER ON BOTH SIDES!  This gorgeous waterside event offers a 5K and 10K distance both beginning at 8:30 

All participants will receive the very unique Tampa Bay Whiskey Run finisher's medal that won't disappoint as XRM is known for the best finisher's medals in the world.  Participants will also receive a technical shirt as well as an electronically timed race. Last year's results can be found at Fit2Run times as you can see we draw a very non competitive group of runners and walkers with no course time limit.

From local Tampa Bay health enthusiasts to people who have visited Tampa Bay from all over the world, we’ve fallen in love with this beautiful fully paved fitness trail known as The Courtney Campbell Trail. Many of us have dreamed about participating in an event with water on both sides and this Bay run is one of the most classic in the world. 

Both distances are timed with finishers medals for all and top finisher awards to the faster runners. The morning moves fast, we have a finite amount of registrants, and you will need to be on site in a timely manner in order to advance toward your start corral zones.


Our Xanadu races benefit the 501c3 Finish Lines for Scholarships  So you will see many teen groups volunteering along the course.  Parking is free and very convenient with instructions coming out to all pre registered participants on race week.

Both distances are an out and back course from Whiskey Joe's on the CC trail which is completely paved. Strollers are welcome. If you are a participant who requires a special device please contact race management so that we start you in the perfect wave to suit your needs.


An email will be sent Thursday of race week to all race participants with arrival information and all the details you need to know to expedite morning check in.

 Please send any questions to Suzanne at
