PGDC ‘Goody Goody’ Virtual Race Bag

In an effort to ‘go green-er,’ the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Race Weekend will once again partner with Virtual Race Bags to produce a ‘Virtual Runner Bag.’

Every 15K, 5K, Half Marathon, and/or 8K registered participant who provides a correct and LEGIBLE email address will receive an email invitation to the Virtual Runner Bag one week before the event.

The Virtual Runner Bag will include Official Race Weekend Information, exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways, and messages from Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Race Weekend event sponsors and exhibitors.

Immediately after the event, the Virtual Runner Bag will be updated to include official race results. You will receive another email invitation to visit your ‘Results Booty Bag’ and have a final opportunity to take advantage of the Booty before the bag closes.
