Mirror Lake 5k Update (as of 4.4.23) - Thank you for your amazing support of the first ever Mirror Lake 5k hosted by BridgePoint Church! Because of the overwhelming support of our community, this event is officially AT CAPACITY and we are closing registration (online and onsite). Don't worry, we are already working on how we can make things bigger and better next year!

Because of the amazing response for the inaugural Mirror Lake 5k, we will be dividing the field of registered runners into two start times:
9:00am - Last Names A-J
9:30am - Last Names K-Z
Onsite Check-In begins at 8am and all runners are required to check-in and secure their race bib before their wave begins. Thank you for being a part of the Mirror Lake 5k and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, April 8th!

BridgePoint's Mirror Lake 5K and Family Fun Lap is a FREE Event!

Lace up and join us on Saturday April 8th for an Easter themed 5K around beautiful Mirror Lake in Downtown St. Petersburg. The day starts at 8am with registration and checkin, with the 5K starting at 9am. Following that we have a chance for your littles to take a fun lap around the lake, stopping at fun and engaging activities along the way.
This event is AT CAPACITY and registration is now closed

For Runners

From seasoned runners to someone just jumping into the sport, this 5k is for everyone! Each participant will complete 5 laps around the course (3.25 mi total), ending with a photo worthy finish in front of the iconic Mirror Lake sign, the lake itself shining in the background. When the run is done, treat yourself to a cup of coffee, maybe a donut, or even a delicious smoothie. Time to lace up and run!

For Families

Our KidsPoint team will have an array of activities for your little ones to engage with, from inflatables to face painting, and Easter crafts.
Then at 10:30, families are invited to complete one (non-timed) lap of Mirror Lake, stopping at stations along the route to collect Easter themed treasures and treats. 

For Spectathletes

Cheering someone on or watching the kids? We've got you covered! The Blessed Cup Coffee Truck will be onsite and each registered person (including those singed up for the Family Fun Lap) will receive a free drink/food ticket redeemable at the truck. Other food and drink items will be available for purchase from Blessed Cup throughout the morning.

Parking Info

Let’s face it, parking in Downtown St. Pete can be frustrating. Finding a place to park is the last thing you want to deal with on race day. To keep things as hassle free as possible, look for our BridgePoint Parking volunteers and plan to park in one of the following areas (marked on the map):

  1. Tomlinson Center Parking Lot - This lot is located behind the Tomlinson Adult Education Center (accessible via 3rd Ave N.) and across the street from the BridgePoint Downtown St. Pete campus.
  2. City Parking #1 - This lot is located next to the Shuffleboard Club (559 Mirror Lake Dr.) and is free on weekends.
  3. City Parking #2 - This lot is located next to the Sunshine Center (330 5th St. N.) and is free on weekends. We will run a shuttle service from this lot to the Registration/Check In area of the race.
