In an effort to continue our support for the St. Augustine Lighthouse, the League hosts an annual 5k & Fun Run! The inaugural race in 1983 was originally titled the “Bud Light Twilight Lighthouse Run.” Hosted by RaceSmith, Inc. the Lighthouse 5k is a chipped race that serves as a qualifier for the famed Gate River Run. The one mile Fun Run is a true treat for the little runners! Don’t miss the awards ceremony following the race on the beautiful Lighthouse grounds. 

Our Night Fest celebration begins immediately following the race and includes activities for the kids such as face painting, arts and crafts, STEAM projects, Photos with Pirates, Live Music, Pizza & Wine, Beer, and more! Don’t miss the opportunity to support the Lighthouse and climb the beautiful tower for FREE! Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming Lighthouse 5K and Fun Run 40th Anniversary!!

Registration is closed at this time.
