This annual event has become so popular and is quick to sell out because of all of the toys our runners choose to pick up prior to the race for the toy drive that gets delivered to the boys and girls club of Tarpon Springs. The toys are not mandatory with your registration but the love is overwhelming so feel free to register and  join us Sunday, December 9, 2018, for another year of Florida's Greatest Seafood 5K at Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grille on the Sponge Docks of Historic Tarpon Springs, Florida.


This completely paved and fun 5K run/walk course takes you from the best seafood restaurant in Florida through the Greek villages and Historic Sponge Docks of Tarpon Springs Florida. This is a favorite for destination runners and walkers as well as locals who love to race the XRM races for their "race local" experience.  The 5K begins at 9:30 and all registrants are encourage to bring an unwrapped new toy ($10 average) that we will donate to the Tarpon Springs Boys and Girls Club who will be present to cheer you on at the finish line.
