Join The Healing Hearts Project on Sunday, February 21st, 2021 at the Beautiful Nocatee Greenway Trail for the 3rd Annual Jax Healing Hearts 5K & 1M. You now have the option to RUN with our added 5K or WALK the 1M. We also have a virtual option for anyone who would like to participate from the location of their choice. 

The festivities will begin at 24 Adventure Trail, Ponte Vedra, Florida 32081 from 7:00am to 12:00pm. All proceeds will go to provide services to families and patients at Wolfson Children’s Hospital/UF Pediatric Cardiology, whether it be for surgery, illness or a routine procedure.

For more information, please visit ​www.thehealingheartsproject.org​. 


We have to make some modifications to allow our event to happen and to happen safely. Subject to change, here are some current plans/procedures.

State and CDC guidelines will be strictly followed. 

*Up to 50 runners/walkers may start every 20 minutes. The race will be chip-timed, so your time does not begin until you cross the start line. 

*Runners will register for 15-minute "starting windows" and will be expected to start during that window.
*There will be water bottles (no open cups) at the start of the race, and at the water stations.

*The 50 runners in each group shall be staggered 6 feet apart from each other. Wait until the runner is 10-20 yards away from you before you start.

*The race will be chip-timed, so your individual time will not start until you cross the starting line.

*All participants will be expected to wear face coverings during packet pickup and to maintain a 6-foot distance from all runners not in their household. Runners do not need to  wear a mask while running.

*RESULTS will be posted online (no results kiosk available at the finish line). Age group and overall awards certificates will be e-mailed following the race.
