Shark Fin 5K is returning to the Venice Airport Festival Grounds BUT Registration is CURRENTLY ON HOLD…

The Venetian Waterway Trail sustained damage during hurricane Ian rendering a part of the course impassible. The Army Corps of Engineers, responsible for restoring the shoreline and revetment for the Intracoastal Waterway, was scheduled to begin work and would be complete within 2-3 weeks, possibly completed now.  However, the trail restoration is a separate project and there is not an estimate for when the trail would be restored.  We are in contact with the Trail Manager and have been told we would be “kept in the loop” as plans and work to restore the trail progress.

We will not open registration for the Megalodon Events until we are certain that we will be able to hold the Shark’s Tooth 10K and Shark Fin 5K.  Once we confirm that the trail has been restored and that we will be able to hold the Megalodon Weekend, we will announce and open registration.  Should the work to restore the trail be delayed, we will make an announcement no later than January 3, 2023 regarding the Megalodon Weekend Events including the Shark’s Tooth 10K and Shark Fin 5K.


The Shark Fin 5K is a family-friendly run/jog/walk that will take you on a flat, fast journey on a 3.1 mile course.  ALL Shark Fin 5K finishers will get a custom Shark Fin 5K finisher's medal.  The Shark Fin 5K will be professionally chip timed with overall, category and age group awards given for 8 & under, 9 to 11 and 12 to 14 year-olds then 5 year age-groups to 85 & over. 

Can't join us to run the Shark Fin 5K on Sunday?  Register for the Virtual Shark Fin 5K and during registration select how you'll receive your race swag.
