Join us Saturday, June 17, 2017 to celebrate Father's Day at Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, FL! This is a 5K event that the entire family can enjoy together and create lasting memories. Everyone is welcome!
**This run is 100% on the beach. We will have a starting area by one of the lifeguard stands, and run along the water to the half-way point. There will be signage, water, and definitely one of the best 5Ks that you will experience!
The Virtual 5K is for athletes around the United States who can't make the Tampa or Sarasota Great Mother's Day Race. The participants will register and run/walk the 5K at the location of their choice. Participants will receive an official bib, dry-fit t-shirt, medal, and goodie bag. Most importantly, they'll be able to participate in the fun where ever they are!
