Registration for the second annual Skyway 10K will open Sept. 13.

Registration opens at 1 p.m. and the event is expected to sell out quickly.

The race will be held on March 3, 2019. It will begin on I-275 at the rest area just south of the Skyway and ends at the rest area on the north side of the bridge, which equals 6.2 miles, or a 10K.

Changes for the second annual race include

  • Increased number of waves to reduce congestion on bridge
  • New iPhone/Android app 
  • Improved coordination with St. Petersburg Police and the Tampa Bay Rays to ease parking hassles
  • Bleacher seating at Tropicana Field around the jumbotron for family and friends to watch the race.
  • Virtual racing, with details to be made available later this year.

The inaugural race raised $560,000 for the Armed Forces Families Foudnation.

One hundred percent of registration fee dollars will go to fund projects to support families of service men and women.
