Welcome to Florida’s ORIGINAL Strawberry Classic Run! It is almost time for another refreshing race through the heart of tree-lined Temple Terrace. The Tampa Bay Runners Club will host the 36th Annual Driscoll’s Strawberry Classic on Saturday, March 25, 2017. 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.

We have supported the Special Forces Wounded Warrior Fund, Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, the Temple Terrace Library, Pediatric Cancer Center, Children’s Cancer Center, Meals On Wheels of Tampa and Children’s Dream Fund.
During just the past 6 years of facilitating the Strawberry Classic, we have raised nearly $40,000 for charity and 85% of all donations go directly back to our chosen charities and the next year’s race. For about six months, Tampa Bay Runners members volunteer their time to create the best experience for all of the sponsors and racing participants. We pride ourselves in supporting/promoting local charities and businesses.
Tampa Bay Runners’ motto: Fitness and well-being comes from serving others. Whether, we are helping another take that first running step or creating awareness in the community, it all breeds hope and happiness. This is what drives our commitment to others.
