The 2024 Tampa Electric's Run for the Manatees in-person 5K
Are you a fan-atee?
That’s what we call people who love manatees as much as we do!
You can help us keep those manatees well-fed and happy!
Tampa Electric's 3rd Annual Run for the Manatees 5K will pass by the Manatee Viewing Center, the cornerstone of Tampa Electric's Florida Conservation & Technology Center (FCTC), and wind through the gorgeous trails on the FCTC campus. Best of all, the unique run will raise awareness and support for Tampa Electric’s manatee conservation efforts by supporting the manatee research program within the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
