On your mark, get set, go! Registration for the fifth annual Panther 5K Run/Walk is now available online at www.southflorida.edu/panther5k/. This annual family event will take place on Saturday, March 1 and benefits the South Florida State College (SFSC) Athletic Department.
The Panther 5K Run/Walk will take participants on a path through the beautiful SFSC Highlands Campus and along College Drive. Participants can choose to run the 5K as a race or to take a more leisurely, family-friendly walk. Four-legged friends and strollers are welcome.
The entry fee for the SFSC Panther 5K Run/Walk is $25 for adults, $20 for students with a current I.D., and $15 for children ages 6-12. Children under the age of 6 are admitted free with a completed form, but do not receive a shirt. The first 200 registered runners receive a goody bag and an official Panther 5K dri-fit shirt for adults and students. Children receive a t-shirt. The entry fee remains the same through race day. Sizes cannot be guaranteed for those who enter on or after Feb. 9.
Registration is 7 – 7:45 a.m. on race day. The race begins at 8 a.m. Scrambled eggs and fruit will be available to participants after the race. A special awards ceremony will follow the race. Awards will be given to the first three finishers in each age (6 and up) and gender category as well as Overall and Masters.
