Raptor Run 3K presented by the St. Augustine Alligator Farm
A portion of the proceeds raised through this event will benefit the Avian Research and Conservation Institute (ARCI) and their conservation research on the migratory Swallow-tailed Kite.
ARCI provides the data and guidance needed by wildlife managers to save imperiled birds. This not-for-profit's team of highly skilled ecologists, based in Gainesville, Florida, has used a mix of scientific skills, sophisticated technology and old-fashioned fieldwork for the last 31 years to unravel the biological intricacies and behavioral secrets of struggling species in need of conservation. ARCI's goal is to build healthy, sustainable bird populations in a world where constant declines and extinctions loom for so man wild animals.

3K USATF Certified Course # FL20012JK
The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.
There will be free parking at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm for the entire day. The start and finish of the race will be at the Alligator Farm.
Overall Male and Female finishers and the top three runners in the following age groups: 9 and under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 and older.
