Our annual 7.2k Springs Run returns this year on Saturday, February 1st. The race starts at 11:00 AM at First Magnitude and goes down the Hawthorne Trail. We’ll also offer a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk at 11:15 for those looking for something a little shorter. All profits will benefit the Florida Springs Institute. The Howard T. Odum Florida Springs Institute is an educational non-profit in High Springs dedicated to ensuring the wise management and restoration of Florida springs and the aquifer that we all depend upon for our water supply. Registration in the First Magnitude 7.2 Springs Run will benefit the Florida Springs Institute and its efforts to educate students about springs science.

All runners in the 7.2K will get a post-race First Magnitude beer! T-shirts are not included with registration but are available for an additional donation to the Florida Springs Institute during registration! ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER UNTIL 1/19/2019.

Are you fast? Run for the mug! The top 3 finishers in each age and gender group will get their own First Magnitude mug with a beer fill (for winners under 21 years of age, you will just get the mug). We'll also have lots of other great prizes including running shoes for top overall finishers!

Age groups will be split by gender and are as follows: 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, and 65+.

Come join us and run for the springs!

Packet pick-up will be at First Magnitude Brewing Company on Friday 1/30/2020 from 4-8 PM or prior to the race. WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE EARLY PICK-UP TO AVOID CONGESTION!
