Food on the Run 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run

Saturday September 30, 2017 - 8:00AM

E.G. Simmons Regional Park, 2401 19th Ave. NW, Ruskin, FL


Welcome to the inaugural FOOD ON THE RUN Charity Event benefitting Calvary Church’s Community Cupboard. By your participation, you will be supporting a community effort that feeds 2000+ people each week.

Now located on the new Calvary Mission Center site on College Ave. Ruskin, the Cupboard has been in existence for 35 years. Learn more about the Cupboard, the associated Angel Attic; and about how else you can serve and help change the lives of others!

Enjoy these beautiful 5K and 1 Mile paved courses as they wind their way through the wooded E.G. Simmons Park on the banks of Tampa Bay in the growing Southshore of Hillsborough County.

Whether a first time runner or preparing for the Fall race season, there is a place for you here. Be inspired by music and local cheer squads! Meet new friends!

The 5K starts promptly at 8:00am and will be chip timed by TRC Race Management.

There will also be a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk immediately following the 5K.

Virtual Supporters: For those who want to participate in the fun where ever you are, but can't make this race: Register here. Then run/walk a 5K at the location of your choice OR from your armchair with morning coffee! Receive a sponsorship certificate.

Come out and join us for a great late September run as we rush into the peak running season. Bring your bathing suit and stay for the day after the post race party.

This is a great opportunity to support an awesome cause!
