MBA 5K Run on the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg track logo

We appreciate your patience as we have been exploring options to host an in-person 5K race; however, given our current times, and the need to social distance the competitors and participants, we feel it is best if we operate this year’s Modern Business Associates 5K Run on the Firestone Grand Prix Track VIRTUALLY instead.

In the new virtual model, you can run/walk a 5K distance on your own time and on your own course (even inside on a treadmill if you'd like!). The virtual event will take place between Oct. 23, 2020 - Nov. 6, 2020.

If you were already registered for the original March date you therefore are eligible to receive your race materials (shirt, medal and race bag) during one of our pick-up dates listed below. If you are unable to attend the in-person pick up dates, we will mail your shirt and medal to you after Oct. 22nd. Please note that shipping could take up to two weeks.

Packet Pick-Up Information:


  • Rococo Steak - 655 2nd Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33701


  • Wednesday, Oct. 21 - 3:30pm - 7:30pm 
  • Thursday, Oct. 22 - 3:30pm - 7:30pm


Since 2016, contributions from the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg and proceeds from the Modern Business Associates 5K Run have reached $190,000 enabling the Police Athletic League (PAL) of St. Petersburg’s mission to provide enriching activities and eye-opening experiences to hundreds of young people.  With the challenging year that 2020 has been, we are thrilled to still have the opportunity to provide such meaningful support in the St. Petersburg community by hosting the VIRTUAL MBA 5K Run.  PAL remains the primary beneficiary from this annual event, and new for 2020 as announced earlier, American Stage, the Tampa Bay area’s longest-running, most critically-acclaimed professional theatre company, will also receive a contribution from the event.

As this is a charitable event and benefits two great community organizations, no refunds will be processed on registration fees.  More information and updates will be posted at

While we won’t be joining together in person this time, we can still come together for some fun, fitness, and charity. Registrations will be reopened shortly, invite your friends and family to sign up, and race virtually with you! If you have any questions, please contact us at
