New Year's Prediction Run

Saturday December 29, 2018 - 8:00AM


End the year predictably by estimating your finish time in either the 5K or 10K distance. Leave your watch, IPod, headphones (all your new Christmas gadgets) home as you attempt to estimate your finish time. The winners will be the runners that finish closest to their predicted time along the paved course of beautiful Old Tampa Bay.

What the heck is a prediction run?

A prediction run is entirely different from other races that you’ve run in the past. Rather than finishing first or running the fastest, the object of a prediction run is to finish as close to the time as possible that you predict.

Watches, GPS timers and other timing devices exclude you from award eligibility.

A great way to wrap up your year of running by predicting your 2018 finish.
