What exactly is the PB&J Run?
The PB&J Run is a deliciously-themed run in Clearwater, FL that includes a 5K, 10K, and 15K event.
What is the PB&J virtual run?
A virtual run is just like running a race with thousands of other people… just not all in 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! *Sign up by September 13th to make sure you receive your packet by race week.
Whether you’re on “team crunchy” or “team smooth”, everyone knows PB&J is a classic. Inspired by the beloved lunchbox staple, we’re so excited to make PB&J lovers’ dreams come true by celebrating the nostalgia, comfort, and super-efficient athlete fuel that is Peanut Butter & Jelly through this signature event.
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 $50,000 annually to help individuals who are living with a mental illness, who are homeless or housing unstable, and those experiencing other traumas. You can learn more about the charitable component of PB&J Run below.
How do I register and how much does it cost?
What is included in my registration?
With your registration for the PB&J Run as a Virtual Runner, you will receive:
- Signature PB&J Run Medal
- Performance T-Shirt
- This year, you can upgrade to a long sleeve tech shirt or a racerback tank!
- Commemorative Race Bib

Will there be race awards given out?
No race awards will be given out for the 2021 PB&J Virtual Run. We will post and recognize age group winners the week after the race using the results that we receive from participants who submit them on Active.com.
Something changed - can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, we do not offer any refunds for this race.
When is the last day to register to ensure I get my race packet by the beginning of race week, September 27th?
You can register for the PB&J Run any time before October 3rd. In order to ensure, to the best of our ability, that you receive your packet in time for race week, we ask that you register by September 13th. If you register after September 13th, you can still complete and submit your time during race week, there’s just a chance you might get your packet a little late!
When do I need to complete my run?
Do the run whenever works best for you during the week of September 27th – October 3rd.
How do I track my distance/time and submit my results?
PB&J Run Experience App coming soon! Download the Active Experience App, log in using your Active.com information, and search for the PB&J Run. When you are ready for your run, click the “Virtual Event” panel and you can track and submit your race right from the app! Once you have completed your race, you can choose whether to submit your time immediately, save it to submit at a later time, or erase your time to redo it another day.
Submitting via Active.com
If you would rather track your run using your preferred tracking device (fitness band, smart watch, phone, treadmill, etc), simply do your run and then follow this link to submit your time! You will need to upload a picture with your time – you can use either a screen shot or picture of your final time or upload a picture of you crossing your virtual finish line!
Can I change my race distance?
Yup! You can do so at no cost through your Active.com page or email us at [email protected] and let us know if you want to change your race category.
Can I run the normal PB&J Run route on my own?
We suggest that you don’t! If you choose to run your virtual run over the Memorial Causeway, please make sure to stick to sidewalks only, as there will be no support or road closures for your safety.
We hope that all of our runners will use their best judgement and planning to make for a safe, enjoyable virtual run.
Do you ship internationally?
As of right now, we can only ship to addresses within the contiguous United States.
What do I do if my shirt doesn’t fit? Can I swap it out?
We do not offer any size exchanges after we have shipped your race packet. We highly recommend that all participants click the links below to view the sizing chart to make sure you order the right size for your t-shirt.
