2023 PGDC Online is Open!

Although the Gasparilla Distance Classic Association (GDCA) has instituted practices to lessen or reduce the spread of COVID-19, the GDCA cannot guarantee you will not get exposed to the virus or get sick as a result of attending one of the GDCA events. By attending or participating in a 2023 PGDC Race Weekend Event, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

ATTENTION WALKERS!
