2023 Race for Education 5K & 1-Mile Run/Walk

race for education

We are excited to pick up the pace for public education as we prepare students for life in Hillsborough County Public Schools. Join us for our 2nd Annual Race for Education 5K on Saturday, April 1, 2023, as we move to improve mental and physical wellness while celebrating and supporting our students, teachers, and school district initiatives. Runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels are invited for a fun-filled race down North Boulevard and over the Hillsborough River. Join us for giveaways, snacks, refreshments, student performances and music to amp you up as you race through downtown.

There is also a 1-mile option for families, children and walkers.

Registration includes a swag bag with a race-day bib, freebies from our partners in education, a t-shirt and a finisher medal.


You won’t want to miss the post-race awards & celebration!
