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.
This is SO much more than a race! This is an awesome event to honor and celebrate the cancer journeys of brave young cancer warriors. This is a beautiful CERTIFIED 5k course through downtown Abacoa. The course is flat and fast, and lined with superheroes (bring your camera!). Bring your friends and start a team.
The certified course starts outside Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, goes through Abacoa and finishes at HOME PLATE inside the stadium
ALONG THE COURSE
During the 5k course, athletes will earn beads along the way that honor a child’s cancer journey:
Blue Beads for HOPE
Red Beads for STRENGTH
Green Beads for RESILIENCE and TENACITY

Participants of the untimed 1 mile Fun Run (or Walk) will also get GOLD Beads at the Finish!
Finisher medals will be awarded to the first 500 registrants.
There will be awards given to the overall male and female winners. In addition, there will be 5-year age-group awards starting with 10 & under going up to 70 & older.
