RULES

BAG CHECK

There will be NO bags allowed on the course. Skyway 10K will have a complimentary bag check at Tropicana Field. One bag per person can be checked in the morning of the race.

Please be aware that every bag is subject to inspection before it’s checked. It is advised to leave belongings at home/in cars, if possible.

Please note: If you leave your belongings in your car, the Skyway 10K and Tropicana Field take no responsibility regarding their safety.
Participants will not be allowed on the shuttle if they try to bring a bag.

Participants should consider the time it takes to park, check a bag, and get on the bus on time.

CUP-LESS RACING

The Skyway 10K is proud to be completely cup-less. This means there will be no paper water cups available between the start and the finish line. This helps keep the Tampa Bay beautiful by reducing waste, while also ensuring that all participants and volunteers are safe.

Participants WILL have access to water in the start area and in self-serve refill stations throughout the course. At the finish line, Skyway 10K will then provide each athlete with a bottle of water.

Participants will be allowed to bring water bottles up to 24 ounces, but they must be clear containers. All participants are responsible for carrying their own bottles from start to finish, as there will be no trash cans on the bridge. Handheld containers can include a bike bottle, a handheld running bottle, or any type of non-glass water bottle.

If participants do not have a water bottle on them during the race, they may still safely drink water from the cup-less water station which works similarly to a water fountain (seen in the image to the left).

PARKING AND ROAD CLOSURES

PARKING

Tropicana Field is providing parking for race day weekend completely FREE of cost! Parking is available for all race participants and spectators on a first-come, first-served basis – it will fill up fast!

Here are a few tips:

  • Carpooling and ride sharing are recommended.
  • Participants may need to park around Tropicana Field on the streets, so consider street parking costs (if any).
  • Allow plenty of time to walk to Tropicana Field so as not to miss bus departure waves.
  • All participants are responsible for making sure they arrive on time, ready to get on their respective bus.
  • This includes accounting for any traffic, parking time, and walking time. Plan accordingly!

RACE COURSE

THE COURSE

The Skyway 10K is point-to-point from Manatee County to Pinellas County running northbound over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The only way to get to the starting line will be by official buses. Buses will begin loading at Tropicana Field in Downtown St. Petersburg. Runners will be bussed to the starting point in Terra Ceia in Manatee County. Once over the bridge, buses will be waiting at the finish line to take runners back to Tropicana Field.

Please note: the northbound lanes over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge are scheduled to close at 3:30 AM on Sunday, March 3, 2019. Please make travel plans to Tropicana Field accordingly.

This year, we will have an app (Android/iPhone) that will have live parking updates to make race day easier!
