Chris Balestrini, Becky Howarth, and the ghost of José Gaspar star in the Gasparilla 15K

Nearly every year since 1904, Tampa, Florida has staged the Gasparilla Festival, honoring José Gaspar. It seems strange to celebrate the takeover of the city by a pirate, especially a pirate who most likely never existed, and who was purported to live before Tampa was founded. But any excuse for a party, right?


In 1978 a fifteen-kilometer road race, the Gasparilla Distance Classic, became part of the festival. At times the festival has also included a 5K, an 8K, a half marathon, and even a marathon, but the 15K has been run each year since 1978. If any race is the Classic in the Gasparilla Distance Classic, it's the 15K. And on Saturday morning, 23 February 2019, Canadian runner Chris Balestrini won the 42nd annual Gasparilla Distance Classic 15K by nearly 200 meters, running 47:12. Tampa's own Becky Howarth was the first woman in the race, placing 21st overall in 55:50.


The course for the Gasparilla hasn't change much over the years, an out-and-back route along Bayshore Boulevard. There are no hills to speak of, but the runners can be impeded by the breeze off the bay. They were in 2019.


"I thought we had the wind against us on the way out: I was wrong," said Stan Linton. "Wind was pretty bad coming home."


Linton was in a lead group of four runners at the turnaround that included Chris Balestrini, Alex Milne, and three-time Gasparilla champion Austin Richmond. An officer in the United States Navy and a former Florida State Seminole distance runner, Linton didn't shy away from the headwind.


"I took the lead a halfway, held it to 6.5 miles," said Linton. "Then I hit a lactic bomb with two miles to go."


As Linton faded, Balestrini made his move. A second-year medical student at London, Ontario's Western University, left the other three leaders behind to fight over second place. Alex Milne of Nokomis, Florida took that runner-up spot, running 47:44. Overtaking a distressed Richmond with 600 meters to go, Linton kicked home to take third in 47:58. Richmond finished a close fourth in 48:04. Tom Russell of Tampa, Florida was the fastest master runner in the 15K; Russell placed fourteenth overall in 53:46.


Kristen Tenaglia of Seminole, Florida finished runner-up to Howarth in the women's standings, placing 27th overall. Lakeland, Florida's Loni Smith was the third woman and 31st overall in 57:45. Jennifer Sober of Jupiter, Florida was the first woman master and tenth female finisher, 66th overall in 60:21.


5,578 athletes finished the 2019 Gasparilla Distance Classic 15K. The 43rd annual Gasparilla Distance Classic 15K is scheduled for Saturday morning, 22 February 2020.
