5K & FunRun
About the Event
Hello 2020!!! The COVID 19 Pandemic hit all non profits hard, including us. Our response is to remain creative and think outside of the box. We are doing 2020 differently now, as we are sure many of your families are too. We cancelled all planned events and have created new virtual opportunities. Please consider participating in our Virtual 5K ReRun. All proceeds will be donated to local non profits who need us now more than ever.
How do you run virtually? Easy! Click on donate, select Virtual 5K ReRun, and run with your friends and family anywhere you would like on November 7th, 2020. Be sure to take pictures and post with our hashtags when you run so that we may recognize and thank you! Use the hashtag #Lighthouse5KReRun and #JSLofStAug .
Please consider purchasing our St. Johns County Essential Heroes 2021 Calendar as another way to support our community!
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 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 provided by Love Chunk, Pizza & Wine, Beer, and more! Don’t miss the opportunity to support the Lighthouse and climb the beautiful tower for FREE!
Proceeds from the Lighthouse 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run benefit numerous JSL service projects and provide financial support for local non-profit organizations in our community.
