The Best Damn Race organizers came up with a clever way to use all the extra medals and shirts from their Safety Harbor, Jacksonville, Orlando and Cape Coral races. They're having their second Leftover 5K in Safety Harbor on Saturday, June 3.
Runners in the Leftover 5k choose from 10-15 different race shirts, and 20+ medals.
Specific medals and shirt sizes aren't guaranteed, but organizers say right now they have plenty of everything. After the race there is a post race party with food and drinks.
New Medals and Shirts Added This Year
Along with previous bling, these new medals will be in the mix: the Cape Coral 2015 Life Preserver Medals, Jacksonville 2016 Surf Board Medals, Safety Harbor 2016 Stand Up Paddle Board Medals, and Orlando 2016 Flamingo Medals. (Go ahead and look them up on Instagram or Facebook. You're going to like them.)
New shirts this year are from Cape Coral 2016, Jacksonville 2017, Safety Harbor 2017, Orlando 2017, and New Orleans 2017 races. (I'm looking at you, New Orleans!)
Hurry Up and Register Already
I'm looking forward to this race for a few solid reasons:
One More Reason to Run
The selected charity partner for the Best Damn Race Safety Harbor & Leftover 5K is Special Olympics Florida — Hillsborough County. I don't know about you, but I run a bit faster when I know the race supports a good cause!

I love running in new places. Throw in a shirt, medal and a beer, and I'm giddy.
Well, you can color me completely happy after the Par4Miler at Innisbrook Resort on Sunday, March 5th. It was a charming event!
The 4 mile race on the cart paths of the Copperhead Course raised money for charity, offered participants a behind the scenes sneak peek of the Valspar Championship, AND gave everyone a voucher for a free can of Valspar interior paint.
The post-race party was in a hospitality tent. Finishers enjoyed pizza, brownies, granola bars, protein shakes, beer, wine and soda with a view of the 18th green.
The #Par4Miler was the official kickoff for the #ValsparChampionship golf tournament taking place March 6-12.
