Come for the race.  Stay for the Party!

Imagine a beautiful moonlit night, at The Woodlands, in North Port, where the only sounds you hear are the frogs calling in the night. The rustling of the brush as wildlife forages in the woods.   The splash of the occasional jumping fish or the undeniable sound of a gator sliding off the bank into the water.   You turn your light toward the darkness, green eyes catch the light and glow as they stare back at you.   Is it a deer, a hog, or maybe a bobcat.    You hear your feet hitting the pavement. You hear your heart rate increase.  Is it because you are running?    You know you are perfectly safe as you make your way down our paved  5K course and realize you have never felt so alive while in a race.  All your senses are tingling as your mind imagines the wonders all around you that make Woodlands the beautiful place it is.
As you see the lights of the finish line ahead, the sounds of dance music start to replace the sounds of the wild.  You smell the aroma of excellent party food.  The thought of a cold beer pushes you on, and you realize that this is going to be a fantastic night with great friends!    Like we said.  Come for the race.  Stay for the party!


It's a timed 5K (actually 3.2 miles) race — a Custom Medal for every finisher.

A guaranteed Race Shirt for everyone registered by May 15,  2020.

Come in a lighted costume of any kind and be entered to win a grand PRIZE!  TBD

The food will be excellent.   Hamburgers and fresh hot French Fries!  (Subject to Change)
The After Party will feature Group Karaoke, Corn Hole, Great Food, Ice Cold Beer, Hard Cider, and non-alcoholic beverages. All with great friends and a ton of fun! Age Group Awards will go three deep.

Although we are not restricting kids of any age, it is more of an adult event!  It is up to you to decide if you want to bring your kids.     Make it a date night!

You will love the race, and the party will be awesome!


Race bibs cannot be sold!    

You have a couple of options.   For $15 you can defer to 2021 Under the Moon 5K or for $20 we will transfer your bib to another runner of your choice.     The last day to defer or transfer is May 15, 2020.
