Tampa Riverwalk (

Need a break from the sitting and networking at the meeting? If you feel like stretching your legs a bit, run with your colleagues and friends along the beautiful Tampa Riverwalk for the Spawning Run. Feeling more relaxed? Follow along at a more leisurely pace in the Carcass Crawl.

The route will be an out and back 3.1 mile course starting and finishing at Cotanchobee Ft. Brooke Park, which adjacent to the host hotel. So just roll out of bed and come join the fun.

Runners will begin at 6 AM with Crawlers immediately behind. The run will be timed via Chronotrack Live, with results posted later online. Refreshments at the finishing line await all participants and awards will also be presented to the top finishers in multiple categories. Volunteers along the route will help show you the way and keep your gills wet!

Register on-line and check in at the spawning run booth in the convention center to receive race information and your t-shirt. All on-line registrants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Late registration will be allowed at the booth until 5 PM on Monday, but a t-shirt and size choice cannot be guaranteed.
