Disclaimer: TheTampa Bay Bloggers’ are a Silver Sponsor for Susan G. Komen Florida Suncoast Race for the Cure.
On October 3, the Susan G. Komen Florida Suncoast Race for the Cure returns to downtown St. Petersburg Albert Whitted Park for a all new fun run experience, A GLOW RUN!
While this year’s event will glow brighter than ever, much like previous years, there are several ways to Race for the Cure
The 10K competitive race will wind through the beautiful, waterfront streets of downtown St. Petersburg and Snell Isle. This event is timed and all participants will receive a runner goodie bag, timing chip & Race bib.
The 5K competitive race will follow the same beautiful course as the 10K, just half the distance. This event is timed and all participants will receive a runner goodie bag, timing chip & Race bib.
You don’t have to run to have a good time at the Race! This registration is for those who want to do the non‐competitive 5K Run/Walk, the 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk or be Proud in the Crowd. All participants will receive a Race packet with a Race shirt & Race bib.
Students for the Cure
A special student rate for students in middle school through college. You will need to enter your school name and student ID during registration. All Students for the Cure registrants will receive a race packet with a Race shirt & Race bib. This is a non‐competitive, non‐chip‐timed entry. To participate in one of the competitive categories, you must register in that category. There are no student rates for the competitive Race categories.
Kids for the Cure
No matter the age, we need everyone’s help in the Fight Against Breast Cancer!! Kids for the Cure is available for all kids 10 years of age & under. We will have kids dashes and kids’ activities available on Race Day. Kids for the Cure Race packets will include a Race shirt & Race bib.
Can’t make it to the Race? You can Race in spirit instead! Virtual Race participants will be mailed a commemorative Race shirt.
This year, several of our Tampa Bay Bloggers are participating in Race for the Cure as part of the Tampa Bay Bloggers RAC Pack once again. (Click on the images to visit their sites.)

Jenny of Metamorfit
Jessica of Tampa Mom Runs
Tara of Everyday Ramblings
Chrissy of Loving Life

Steph of Orangespoken
If fact, many of the #RACPack are joining #TeamJudy. Steph lost her mom to breast cancer. Since losing her mom, Steph has become an advocate for preventive treatment, breast cancer awareness and education and healthy living. So many of us, like Steph, have lost a loved one (a sister, a mom, a wife, a friend, the list goes on) to breast cancer.
The pain and loss is personal as breast cancer affects
one in eight women.
For that reason, Race for the Cure focuses on the personal accounts from every man and woman who has been touched by breast cancer to put a face to the disease. If you want to share your #itspersonal breast cancer story, submit your story here. Many of the submitted stories are being featured on the Florida Suncoast Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Facebook Fan Page.
Join us tomorrow for a #ItsPersonal #TampaTuesday Twitter Chat at 12pm to share your personal stories related to breast cancer and your Race for the Cure glow run tips. During the #TampaTuesday chat, we’ll be giving away a race entry.
Enter for your chance to win a Race for the Cure entry. Tell us why #itspersonal to you.
Who will you GLOW and Race for the Cure for?
