Since 2002, The Great West Chase and its amazing sponsors have hosted a competitive field of racers, walkers, families, and kids from all over Tampa Bay. Organized by WOW magazine, this year’s races benefit Woodbridge Elementary School. One hundred percent of their net proceeds will support math and literacy programs at a local school.


The Great West Chase now sees over 1,300 runners in three different races—a 10k, 5k and Fun Run. The Great West Chase is a USATF/RRTC nationally certified 10K Run (Certification Code FL14089EBM), 5K Run/Walk (Certification Code FL-14088EBM), and Fun Run.
