"In 2020, the race was held virtually later in the year while in 2021, the race was canceled completely due to the COVID-19 pandemic," the airport reminded runners in a news release.
Registration will open online on Jan. 15. The cost per participant is $35, plus registration. It will be limited to the first 2,000 people who sign up. All proceeds will go to United Way Suncoast.
A race T-shirt will and medal be included and provided after you reach the finish line.
