Is it just us or is September flying by? It’s probably because there have been endless amounts of fun things to do in Tampa Bay. You know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun.

Good news, this weekend is no different! No matter what your budget may be or what you’re interests are, Tampa Bay has something for everyone. If you want to get all the tea on what’s going on in the city you have to head over to our Instagram @StufftoDoinTampaBay and Exclusive Facebook Group!

With that said, want to know how to eat countless PB&J sandwiches this weekend? Keep reading.

Peanut butter jelly time! The PB&J Run is back for its 3rd year! Run a chip-timed 5K or 10K (up to you!) in stunning Downtown Clearwater.

The race kicks off at Coachman Park and will take you across the Memorial Causeway Bridge where you’ll witness a beautiful sunrise over the Gulf. For those running the 10K, you get to run beside the white sand at Clearwater Beach.

Each participant will receive a t-shirt and a hinged finisher medal that ACTUALLY smells like PB&J–you might want to eat it, but please don’t.

Each course includes water stations so you can stay hydrated. Once you cross the finish line, a reward of unlimited peanut butter and jelly sandwiches await. Do you like crunchy or smooth peanut butter? Grape or strawberry jelly? Whatever your preference, they have it all. A “made to order” tent will be there for those that want a few extra customizations. 

Online registration closes on Wednesday 9/18 at 11PM. BUT you can register the morning of the race or at Packet Pick-Up on Friday 9/20 from 4PM–7PM at Coachman Park.
