Good Luck Box Partners with the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic for the Upcoming 2017 Event
But first… a pirate joke:
What is a pirate’s favorite letter?
You’d think it’s be the R, but ‘tis the C they love.
Good Luck Box is elated to announce our partnership with the 2017 Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic for our second year. This Tampa, Florida event features four races spread between two back-to-back days including: 5k, 8k, 15k, half marathon, and a whole slew of challenge events for those who dare. This pirate themed race is held annually to coincide with Tampa’s Gasparilla Festival, a month long pirate festival held in late January through early February. The festival celebrates the apocryphal legend of José Gaspar (Gasparilla), a mythical Spanish pirate captain who supposedly operated in Southwest Florida. If you haven’t done the race or the parade – add this to your “must do list” immediately. Just make sure to brush up on your pirate talk beforehand.
Good Luck Box has teamed up with the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic to design the perfect pirate runner support box to make sure you are prepared event weekend. The box includes items to help you prep before, during, and after the event… as well as the essentials of Gasparilla: eye patch, bandanna, pirate’s booty, and of course, the ever sought after beads! Note: parrot and peg leg not included.
Each Gasparilla Good Luck Box is loaded with over $60 of items to make sure you or your lucky pirate runner is ready to go race weekend. Yes, pirate jokes included. Gasparilla boxes are on sale now and are included in our “Featured Race” section during checkout.
