The 2023 Roar Through Ybor is an Annual 5K Race and 1-Mile Fun Run event that supports organ, eye, and tissue recovery to benefit individuals in need of lifesaving and life-transforming transplantation therapy through two nonprofit organizations: LifeLink Legacy Fund and Lions Eye Institute Foundation. Together we are dedicated to raising awareness for these vital causes both in Tampa Bay and around the world. Become a sponsor today, gather friends and race together, and join us on the journey to bringing the gift of sight to Tampa Bay and throughout the world. 

We have three different race options:

  • The 5K is a chip timed event. Awards are given out for this race for those who thrive on competition! Awards will be given to the 1st place male and female runners in 9 age categories as follows: 12 and under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 and up.
  • The 1-Mile Fun Run is a one-mile, family-friendly walk, run, or jog for those who like their race experience to be more about the fun. Awards are not presented in the fun run event.
  • The Zero-K is our virtual race option. You can run from home or don’t! We don’t mind – we will give you a medal anyway!
