Run. Jog. Roll. Stroll.
Lace up your shoes and start stretching. 1st Place Sports is putting on the second annual Run Wild 5K & 10K on Saturday, March 9th, 2024, and we’re going to be running along the trails and through the neighborhoods of Wildlight. And that’s not all that’s taking place at the race. Every registered participant gets a Dri-fit shirt, medal and gift bag — plus fun pre- and post-race activities, too.
Want to know where you’re running?
We’ve mapped out the course, and it’s a good one—with both our 5K and 10K leading you along the Wildlight Trailways. Take a peek. (Practice run optional.)
Run For Good
All proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County Foundation and their mission of funding after-school and summer programs for community youth — providing them with a safe place to study, be surrounded by positive influences, and develop their leadership skills.
We’re adding some fun to the run
There’s a 1-mile fun run. And then there’s just plain fun: like carnival rides and games in the Kids’ Zone, and a balloon artist making special creations.
Enjoy pre- or post-race eats, with food (and coffee) trucks. Grab a healthy (and free) snack at the fruit stand. Stop by the vendor marketplace. Enjoy live music by The Band Be Easy. And commemorate the morning at our selfie station (post your pic on our instagram!).
For The Runners
Before you start, warm up with the Wildlight YMCA. Then hit your mark and go. Once you cross the finish line, get an assessment done by UF Rehab and a massage by Massage Theory. (And don’t forget to grab your goodie bag and even good-ier free beer!)
