Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
The Pre-Med American Medical Student Association (Pre-Med AMSA) chapter at the University of South Florida is a proud supporter of the Florida Autism Center of Excellence (F.A.C.E.). F.A.C.E. is based in Tampa and collaborates with local school districts to provide educational solutions for children and young adults with autism spectrum disorders as well as resources and support for their families.
In an effort to raise money and awareness towards autism and related disorders, Pre-Med AMSA will be hosting a "Race for F.A.C.E." 5k from 10am-2pm on March 25th, 2017. The event will be a splash 5k with snacks and beverages, so come prepared to have fun while being sprayed with water!
Even though the event is called "Race for F.A.C.E." it will not be a race. There will not be a time clock or any placement awards. This is just a perfect reason for you to come and have fun with members of the PAMSA, F.A.C.E., and USF community. All proceeds raised will go to the Florida Autism Center of Excellence.
