St. Pete Rock n' Roll Half Marathon Canceled

The St. Pete Rock n' Roll Half Marathon, whose economic benefit claims Shadow of the Stadium first questioned early in 2012, has posted a message on its website that it was cancelling next February's race.

In 2012, the inagural race failed to live up to its promise of 12,000-15,000 participants, but organizers said it was because the event was new.  In 2013, the numbers were even worse.

The race organizer, the Competitor Group, will still operate the November St. Pete Women's Half Marathon, which it purchased last year from a local company.
