SAM Labor Day 5K

6:00AM EDT - 10:00AM EDT



Earlier this week, UF administration reached out to us indicating that they were cancelling our permit to operate on the pre-approved Lake Alice 5K course. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to reverse this decision. Due to this, we must unfortunately cancel the race for this Sunday. We will be offering full refunds to all participants. Any refunds not claimed after 1 month will still be donated to Grace Marketplace. Thank you for your patience.

Here Are Your Options:

Due to the cancellation of the event, we ask that, if you would like your money refunded, you indicate as such and we will fulfill your request in a timely fashion.

Thank you for your patience. We hope you can join us next time.
