Description

DESCRIPTION
The 10th Annual Superhero 5K/10K/1Mi will be held on February 20, 2021, at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota.

This is a Foster Care Awareness Event. In-person and virtual racing options are available.


10K rolling start from 7:20-7:30am. 5K rolling start from 9:00-9:10am. Kids' Fun Run at 8:30am.


More than just a race, the Superhero race brings together child welfare agencies and the community to highlight the 1200 youth who are in local foster care in Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties, while providing a family-friendly event with music, a kiddie zone, food, and giveaways.


We believe that kids in foster care and those who care for them are some of our community's most incredible heroes, which is the reason we have chosen a superhero theme. So don't be shy... come dressed as your favorite hero and get ready for an awesome race and cause!
