[ HOW WE'RE GIVING BACK ]

[ FAQs ]

What is the PB&J Run?

The PB&J Run is a deliciously-themed run in Clearwater, FL held each fall. Established in 2017, the race has gathered thousands of PB&J lovers’ from across the Tampa Bay area and beyond to celebrate the nostalgia, comfort, and super-efficient athlete fuel that is Peanut Butter & Jelly through this signature event.

 

The PB&J Run features a 5K, 10K, and 15K challenge and runners of all experience levels are encouraged to join the fun! Participants receive our signature hinged PB&J medal, performance t-shirt, and more, along with unlimited PB&J sandwiches at the finish line.

 

2020 Race: The uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis has caused us to make the difficult decision to change the format of this year’s PB&J Run to a virtual race. 

What is going on with the 2020 PB&J Run?

Each year, we look forward to the comradery of fellow athletes, the beautiful park and inter-coastal setting of the event, and of course unlimited PB&J sandwiches! While nothing can replace the power of an in-person, onsite event, the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis has caused us to make the difficult decision to change the format of this year’s PB&J Run to a virtual race. This decision was not easy; however, the safety and wellbeing of our participants, volunteers, spectators, and sponsors is always our top priority.

We love the PB&J Run and we know that so many of you do too! So, we are excited to share this year’s theme and the new event details with you. Celebrating health and wellness is part of our DNA and while we may not all be in the same place on race day, we can still come together for our love of PB&J’s while giving back more than ever before. Introducing this year’s theme: “Spread the Love”.

The “Spread the Love” theme continues our focus on helping populations that are in need, particularly in the face of COVID-19. This year’s race participants will receive all of the PB&J Run swag that our runners have come to know and love—our signature hinged PB&J Run medal, tech t-shirt, and a 2020 commemorative race bib—all delivered to your door during the week of the run (September 14-19). Additionally, the unlimited PB&J sandwiches you would normally receive on race day will be donated in your name to local individuals or families in need. And thanks to the generosity of our 2020 sponsors, 100% of the proceeds from your registration will be helping vulnerable populations across Tampa Bay.

What exactly is a virtual run?

A virtual run is just like running a race with thousands of other people… just not all at the same place! Come race day, you pick your own start time and finish line. You can run (or walk) around your block, choose a 5K route along the beach, or even complete the run on your treadmill. You can run with your friends, family, stroller, dog… your race experience is completely up to you! We just ask that you tag us @pbjrun so we can see your photos!

Register for the PB&J Run and we will ship your medal, t-shirt, and goodies right to you! If you register before September 7th, we will do our best to get you your packet by race week.

Does PB&J Run support a charity?

Yes! We are proud to say that 100% (every dollar!) of the PB&J Run goes to support the children and family services of local 501 (c)(3) non-profit Directions for Living. Fundraising for this important cause is the sole purpose of this event, and thanks to all of you we are able to raise an average of $60,000 annually to help little ones who are homeless and/or are experiencing other traumas. You can learn more about the charitable component of PB&J Run below.
