About the 14th Annual Manatee Center 5K and One-mile
2022 marks the 14th Annual Manatee Center 5K! This Run with a View gets bigger and better every year, and this year, we're including a ONE-MILE route again!
The 5K route is a USATF certified course #FL11040EBM, and is timed by TIMED EVENTS. Overall 5K winners will receive beautiful awards & top three M/F in all age groups will receive certificates. All walkers and runners who cross the finish line will receive beautiful finisher's medals to commemorate your accomplishment. Don't forget the refreshments after the race, and a runner's raffle! All 5K registrants receive a runner's goody bag and a Tech shirt! ALSO: Kids 15 and under register for only $15.
The one-mile route follows the 5K route but turns toward the beautiful Indian River Lagoon before crossing over Seaway Drive Bridge. This route is untimed and there will not be awards, but all registrants will receive tickets to the very popular runners drawing and all finishers will receive a finishers medal.
This race is a fundraiser for the Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation. All proceeds stay local and are dedicated to enhancing environmental education through the Manatee Observation and Education Center, focusing on conservation and preservation of the Indian River Lagoon, an estuary of national significance, marine life within the lagoon, and the surrounding ecosystems.
The Treasure Coast Manatee Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) organization established to support and enhance environmental awareness, education, conservation, and stewardship of endangered species and natural resources fulfilling its mission through the Manatee Observation and Education Center.
As always, THANK YOU for your support and we look forward to seeing you on race day.
