ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Runners headed to Tropicana Field on Saturday, where they picked up their bibs at the Race Expo and Music Festival ahead of Sunday’s Skyway 10K.
Attendees also enjoyed an array of vendors, food, and music. The musical lineup included Love and Theft, The Fulcos, Guava Train and the Jam Jones Band.
To date, the Skyway 10K has raised over $1.8 million to support military families.
The race will close the northbound span of the Skyway Bridge. It will close at 3:30 a.m. Sunday and reopen at 11 a.m. Southbound lanes will remain open for the duration of the race. Northbound drivers will need to look for alternate routes during the morning hours.
