More on the City of St Pete Beach:
The City of St. Pete Beach is the essence of a small, beach community. Situated on a barrier island that forms Boca Ciega Bay with the mainland of St. Petersburg, its approximately 10,000 residents are understandably proud of their community! They have reason to be the home of the St. Pete Beach Classic Race Week, as St. Pete Beach was designated the Sunset Capital of Florida. It has been named the 3rd best family beach destination in the country by Parents Magazine!
A small island measuring about 5 miles long and less than a half-mile wide (at points much less!) residents are an active bunch, participating in civic groups and other organizations aimed at making life here full of fun activities and services that make it truly a tropical paradise! is the biggest event of the year for the City and involves virtually all of the local organizations and many of our businesses to make it happen – all to the benefit of various charities.
The Sirata Beach Resort and Conference Center has been the home of the Classic Since 2008 and is proud to offer hotel room discount specials. To get the St. Pete Beach Classic Weekend special room rate, call toll free and identify yourself as part of the “SPB Classic 2020 Runners Group Block“.
