From there, things get fuzzy. The link above says race start time is 6:30, the registration window says 6:15pm.
There was little race info given on the St Pete GP website, so I contacted the organizer referenced on that page and was given info that didn’t make a whole lot of 5k race sense.
The article makes no mention of the start/finish line, advance packet pick-up, or if there will be a courtesy Friday Grand Prix general admission ticket.
I emailed the contact on the info page and was told:
- Start/finish line will be at the traditional point near the Vinoy (same as previous years).
- There will be NO ADVANCE PACKET PICK-UP
- No courtesy Friday practice grand prix ticket.
The no advance packet pick-up is a problem, and hints that the organizers may not fully understand what race organization involves. May.
After I went for a run, I came back did another google search, and found an info page for the registration site, and THAT page makes a whole lot of 5k race sense, and I’m going to ignore what the out of state organizer was saying.
Looks like all the organizational stuff will be handled by Fit2run in St Pete.
Sorry for any confusion that the out of state organizer gave me. Situation normal.
