Welcome to Florida’s ORIGINAL Strawberry Classic Run!

It is almost time for another refreshing race through the heart of tree-lined Temple Terrace.   Get ready for the enjoyment as you run the winding turns beside the  emerald golf course and past the beautiful, historical houses. Following the race, enjoy music, food,  massage, awards and delicious locally grown strawberries! Few races can claim they have been around for 36 years and fewer still have the honor of still being considered one of the premier events in the Tampa Bay area. This is the ultimate community and family event that also benefits Local Tampa Meals on Wheels and Children’s Dream Fund.  The Strawberry Classic Races has been recognized as one of the top races by Florida Running and Triathlon Magazine which named the 2015 15k race as the #4 most scenic and #4 best organized in the State of Florida.


This year, the Strawberry Classic is excited to welcome AINSLEY’S ANGELS to our race!  Led by the ever popular Florida Ambassador “Run” Jodi Stoner, the Ainsley’s Angels in Florida is proudly participating in the Strawberry Classic Race event.  As Jodi explains In addition to ensuring everyone can experience endurance events, we aim to build awareness about America’s special needs community through inclusion in all aspects of life. Serving as advocates to providing education and participating as active members in local communities, we believe everyone deserves to be included. Look for our ‘freedom chairs’ on race day! We can’t wait to ROLL with all of you!”
