Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic 2021

May 8 - May 9

The 2021 Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic has been moved to be 100% virtual.

Good news is…the City of Tampa has given the approval to close Bayshore Boulevard on Saturday and Sunday, May 8 & 9, so that registered participants can run their virtual race on Bayshore! The hope is to create an experience that, given the extreme circumstances of COVID-19, would still offer a small portion of the traditional Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Race Weekend…running on Bayshore Boulevard.

Additionally, the 8 On Your Side Health & Fitness Expo will still take place on Friday and Saturday, May 7 & 8 in the Tampa Convention Center’s East Hall.  The expo will be held in its traditional form, complete with 2021 PGDC Packet Pick-Up and along with following the convention center’s COVID-19 Mitigation Plan, the celebration of safely bringing folks together to enjoy the health and wellness vendors that have been waiting for an opportunity to share their knowledge and products.
