Once a year 8,000 runners have the opportunity to race 6.2 miles across three beautiful counties 200 feet above Tampa Bay. Behind the race is a reason. From its inception, the Skyway 10K has raised more than $2.6 million for the Armed Forces Families Foundation, contributing 100% of its profits to the mission of funding infrastructure projects that support military families throughout the nation. To date, the AFFF overall has contributed more than $4.2 million into infrastructure projects for communities across the United States.
Spectators and volunteers are always appreciated during the event. Those hoping to participate outside of the race can learn more and sign up on the Skyway 10K’s website.
The annual run begins on I-275 at the rest area just south of the Skyway Bridge and ends at the rest area on the North side of the bridge, which equals 10 kilometers or 6.2 miles. Only the northbound lanes of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge are scheduled to be closed from 3:30 a.m. until 11 a.m.
