Description

WE ARE HAVING THE RACE!!! (Updated 4/8/21)


 


Register by midnight April 14th to be sure to get the 2021 edition race shirt! Registrations after April 14 will receive a past event shirt.


Our race depends on the parade so if by chance the parade gets cancelled then this live event will automatically become a virtual event.



The run BEFORE the parade! 75,000+ cheering spectators along beautiful, tree-lined, Manatee Avenue make this a unique 5k experience.

Runners will race an out-and-back course along the route of the Hernando de Soto Historical Society Heritage Festival Grand Parade on Manatee Avenue down to around 37th St W and back to downtown Old Main. This is one of the most spectacular parades in the southeastern United States. The start and finish line are directly in front of O'Bricks Grille.
