Bring the whole family! Encourage your friends, family, church, school, or civic group to participate, and help us raise thousands of dollars for our charities! This is a timed 5k! All participants will receive a technical shirt and a finisher medal.

Finisher Medals

All 5K finishers will receive a custom designed finisher medal.


The 5K will start on Duval Street in front of the Jacksonville Fairgrounds.


The 5K will finish inside the Fairgrounds entering from Randolph Ave.

This is a 5K for Charity!
