    To All,

    I'm looking for ideas of some places to run nearer the beach. In the Clearwater, Indian Shores, or St. Pete Beach area.
    • It can either be concrete, sand or mixture of both
    • Needs to be at least 3 miles in length or longer
    • Convenient parking is important
    • Needs to have an area we can warm-up prior to running that isn't in the main path of travel for other runners
    • Being close to an eating/drinking establishment is a plus
    • Having a water source close by to get drinking water from is also a huge plus
    We can do the beach run either in addition to or in lieu of the monthly meetup already planned during the 4th Sat of each month. Eventually I'm hoping we'll attract BF/Min runners from both areas, Tampa and the beach areas.Then we can do two meetups per month so folks have choices or they can have twice the fun/camaraderie.

    If anyone has some ideas of where I should focus my search please post them on the Chapter site here, on the Facebook page, or send me email.



    Keep it bare,

    Warren Dickey

    UPDATE: Can't utilize parking @ the Clearwater Marina to run over Causeway bridge - no access& too far. I'll try to come up w/some ideas before our 8/27 meeting & will share w/the group.

    Cheers, Julie

    I'm wondering if there is a way to park and run down to Caladesi State Park.

    Not to Caladesi Island but to Honeymoon Island, Warren! We could park before or on the causeway & run on down to the park.
