DESCRIPTION
The 11th Annual Superhero 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run will be held on February 5, 2022, at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota.

This is a Foster Care Awareness Event. In-person and virtual racing options are available.

Kids' Fun Run starts at 8:30am. Anticipated 5K start at 9am but we will remain flexible to current COVID protocol.

More than just a race, the Superhero race brings together child welfare agencies and the community to highlight the 1100 youth who are in local foster care in Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties, while providing a family-friendly event with music, a kiddie zone, food, and giveaways.

We believe that kids in foster care and those who care for them are some of our community's most incredible heroes, which is the reason we have chosen a superhero theme. So don't be shy... come dressed as your favorite hero and get ready for an awesome race and cause!
