The Course

Named "The Best Little Race in Florida" by Race Place Magazine, the Rattlesnake Run is by far the most challenging short course in Tampa Bay. The 5-mile trek includes hills, sidewalks, groves, a bridge, cross country, and more hills - all in Pasco County's fresh country air.

Started in 1979 in quaint San Antonio, Florida the Rattlesnake Run is among Tampa Bay Area's oldest events.

Discover Florida's original "adventure run" each year on the third Saturday of October. And be sure to enjoy the Rattlesnake Festival while you're in town. It's fun for the whole family!
