Financial Impact

TampaRace.com would like to request permission to serve beer and wine after their race/event on March 4, 2018.  This annual event will be held at Lake Townsen Park from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The 2017 race had 186 participants and will expect to grow in 2018.  Insurance will be provided as the race date approaches.  Tampa Race will pay all associated park fees to hold event in park, but is requesting the Board’s approval for TampaRace.com to serve beer and wine to participating runners after the race is over.
